mtabfile is used by the
mountcommand to record the list of currently mounted file systems.
The problem addressed by this patch can occur if you use several NFS file systems mounted via autofs, and trigger a mount of these at the same time (for instance by running maintenance scripts etc). When autofs later unmounts these file systems simultaneously, it is possible that not all
mtabentries are removed correctly, causing the file to grow without bounds if this happens repeatedly. This can occur because the timeout used by
umountwhen it detects a conflicting lock on the
mtabfile is too low.
