Comment 32 for bug 573919

The way we're dealing with it at my site is as follows:

blacklist autofs4 module
# echo "blacklist autofs4" > /etc/modprobe.d/autofs.conf
# chmod 644 /etc/modprobe.d/autofs.conf
# chown root:root /etc/modprobe.d/autofs.conf

load autofs module
# echo "autofs" >> /etc/modules
# reboot

This is forced on all our machines by cfengine just after the kickstart/preseed. YMMV. We don't use NIS or NFSv4 so don't blame me if this breaks anything as I have only tested it on my particular setup.
