follow_automount() checks if a stat family system call path walk is
being done on a positive dentry and and returns -EISDIR to indicate
the dentry should be used as is without attempting an automount.

But if autofs is expiring the dentry at the time it should be
remounted following the expire.

There are two cases, in the case of a "nobrowse" indirect autofs
mount it would have been mounted on lookup anyway. In the case of
a "browse" indirect or direct autofs mount re-mounting it will
maintain the mount which is what user space would be expected.

This will defer expiration of the mount which might lead to mounts
unexpectedly remaining mounted under heavy stat activity but there's
no other choice in order to maintain consistency for user space.
