this is based on a statement from Al Viro:

agreed, maybe a proper fix would be better ...
Did you discuss this with the autofs maintainers?
I've had a look at the patch and I can't see any problem.
autofs4 doesn't use the inode atime for expire purposes but does update it
in sync with its dentry info struct field that is used for this purpose.
So AFAICS the atime is an external view of expire status,
but only when updated within the autofs4 module VFS callbacks.
I haven't yet looked at the v3 (autofs) module.
I'll get back if I see an issue there.
