Setting AUTOFS_FS and AUTOFS4_FS to y or m results in a compile
It isn't possible to unset one if the other is set because it
introduces a circular dependency.
But adding "depends on AUTOFS_FS = n" will make autofs4 appear
under the autofs entry which should call attention to it. It
also results in AUTOFS4_FS being removed from .config for any
setting of AUTOFS_FS except n.
Adding a "NOTE" to the AUTOFS4_FS help text will hopefully raise
awareness of the change to smooth the transition.
