There is no way for the non-global zone automounter to convert these automounts from NFS to LOFS. Firstly, there is no API for the non-global zone to determine that the NFS server is, in fact, the global zone sharing the same kernel. It can easily tell this though.

It's not obvious to me how the non-global zone can determine the hostname of its global zone unless the global zone puts that information somewhere (like in a new file). Connect to rpcbind and then check whether getpeerucred() works :-) That's just a small matter of programming :-) Seems
