References:         #1038198 #1062482 #1066720 #1068166 
Affected Products:

   An update that has four recommended fixes can now be


   This update for autofs provides the following fixes:

   - Fix issue where comparing CLOCK_MONOTONIC times with stat.st_mtime
     caused repeated re-reads of the map and stale ghost entries for failed
     mounts (bsc#1068166)
   - Fix ordering of seteuid/setegid in do_spawn (bsc#1062482)
   - Fix possible map instance memory leak (bsc#1038198)
   - Check map instances for staleness on map update (bsc#1038198)
   - Fix handling of replicated NFS server so that selection between servers
     still works sensibly when use_hostname_for_mounts is in effect.
   - Fix a bug that causes nanoseconds to be ignored and effectively disables
     sorting of hosts based on response time and/or weight. (bsc#1066720)
