An update on comment #30 - the security update has put testing/verification behind schdule, so the release date for the -proposed kernel has been pushed back a week to Nov 7. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Fix: Use current->real_cred instead of current->cred for getting the requester's uid and gid. Regression Potential: Minimal. current->cred and current->real_cred are the same except when credentials are overridden, thus current->real_cred contains the same credentials that autofs had been using prior to the change which overrides the credentials during automount. --- Hello, I have run into a bug relating autofs's parameter substitution (e.g. UID, GID, etc) with kernel versions 4.4.0-38 and proposed 4.4.0-40. Kernel version 4.4.0-28 does things correctly but testing intermediate kernel versions is hard due to earlier bugs related with fs's. Incorrect parameter substitution makes CIFS mounting with variable credentials impossible. Wat was expected: $UID in autofs map are substituted by the uid of the user that starts the auto-mounting process. What actually happens: Root's uid (0) is substituted instead. This ill parameter substitution likely caused by recent fixes resolving permissions problems for nfs/cifs mounts and dfs referrals (#1626112 and #1612135). And possibly the fix 'fs: Call d_automount with the filesystems creds' but that is a wild guess. Furthermore; playing with the force_standard_program_map_env settings in autofs.conf and prefixing variables with 'AUTOFS_' does not solve anything.
