It appears that folding the "depends" update into the earlier
patch will result in any CONFIG_AUTOFS* entries being silently
removed from .config until the later patch that creates the new
fs/autofs/Kconfig is applied.

Loosing the CONFIG_AUTOFS* settings could surprise someone doing
a bisect.

To try and clear up the confusion I've taken the series from
http://www.ozlabs.org/~akpm/mmotm/series

#NEXT_PATCHES_START autofs
autofs4-merge-auto_fsh-and-auto_fs4h.patch
autofs4-use-autofs-instead-of-autofs4-everywhere.patch
autofs-copy-autofs4-to-autofs.patch
autofs-update-fs-autofs4-kconfig.patch
autofs-update-fs-autofs4-kconfig-fix.patch <--the update was folded into this
autofs-update-fs-autofs4-makefile.patch
autofs-delete-fs-autofs4-source-files.patch
autofs-create-autofs-kconfig-and-makefile.patch <-- when it should have been
<-- folded into this one
autofs-rename-autofs-documentation-files.patch
autofs-use-autofs-instead-of-autofs4-in-documentation.patch
autofs-update-maintainers-entry-for-autofs.patch
#
autofs-comment-on-selinux-changes-needed-for-module-autoload.patch
#
autofs-clean-up-includes.patch
#NEXT_PATCHES_END

And the patches from http://www.ozlabs.org/~akpm/mmotm/broken-out/,
folded "autofs-update-fs-autofs4-kconfig-fix.patch" into
"autofs-create-autofs-kconfig-and-makefile.patch", and dropped the
former fix patch.

I've uploaded the resulting quilt series to
http://people.redhat.com/~ikent/akpm-autofs-rename-series/
so you can check.

The resulting "autofs-create-autofs-kconfig-and-makefile.patch" should
now look like (ha, of course that "Link:" is now wrong ...):

+ The automounter is a tool to automatically mount remote file systems

+
+ If you are not a part of a fairly large, distributed network or
+ don't have a laptop which needs to dynamically reconfigure to the
