Subject[git pull] vfs.git autofs-related stuff
	autofs misuses checks for ->d_subdirs emptiness; the cursors are
in the same lists, resulting in false negatives. It's not needed anyway,
since autofs maintains counter in struct autofs_info, containing 0 for
removed ones, 1 for live symlinks and 1 + number of children for live
directories, which is precisely what we need for those checks. This
series switches to use of that counter and untangles the crap around
its uses (it needs not be atomic and there's a bunch of completely pointless
"defensive" checks).

This fell out of dcache_readdir work; the main point is to get
rid of ->d_subdirs abuses in there. I've more followup cleanups, but
I hadn't run those by Ian yet, so they can go next cycle.

The following changes since commit 5f68056ca50fdd3954a93ae66fea7452abddb66f:

autofs_lookup(): hold ->d_lock over playing with ->d_flags (2019-07-27 10:03:14 -0400)
