CONFIG_AUTOFS4_FS: Old Kconfig name for Kernel automounter support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_AUTOFS4_FS has multiple definitions:

Old Kconfig name for Kernel automounter support found in fs/autofs/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_AUTOFS4_FS:

Help text

This name exists for people to just automatically pick up the new name of the autofs Kconfig option. All it does is select the new option name.

It will go away in a release or two as people have transitioned to just plain AUTOFS_FS.

Kernel automounter version 4 support (also supports v3) found in fs/autofs4/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_AUTOFS4_FS:

Help text

The automounter is a tool to automatically mount remote file systems on demand. This implementation is partially kernel-based to reduce overhead in the already-mounted case; this is unlike the BSD automounter (amd), which is a pure user space daemon.

To use the automounter you need the user-space tools from https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/daemons/autofs/v4/; you also want to answer Y to "NFS file system support", below.

To compile this support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called autofs4. You will need to add "alias autofs autofs4" to your modules configuration file.

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 local network, you probably do not need an automounter, and can say N here.
