Summary0007455: Autofs not working correctly in LXC containers
DescriptionI have a Centos 6.5 64bits host with 32 bits LXC containers.

Inside the containers autofs blocks on lstat(...) calls.
Issue is also reported here:

The proposed patch (once slightly adapted for 2.6.32-431) almost works but there is still something not ok.

Steps To ReproduceSetup autofs with NIS/NIS+
Configure autofs in the container
Try to list the volume ie. ls /mnt/<autofs_mountpoint>
TagsNo tags attached.

mainline kernel works, git commit 6eaba35b437438988078efc92f1ef445a00cd7bc and fbff08706d12fcdb160604c4ba790df6707c32cb seems to fix the issue.

I applied them on 3.10 kernel and it works.

Works is needed in order to backport it to 2.6.32 it seems

Have you tried backporting the patches to the distro kernel (2.6.32-431.el6)?

We can patch the centosplus kernel. However, to get the fix into the distro kernel, the upstream (RHEL) kernel needs to be fixed first.
