Commit 092a53452b (("autofs: take more care to not update last_used
on path walk") helped to (partially) resolve a problem where automounts
were not expiring due to aggressive accesses from user space.

This patch was later reverted because, for very large environments,
it meant more mount requests from clients and when there are a lot
of clients this caused a fairly significant increase in server load.

But there is a need for both types of expire check, depending on use
case, so add a mount option to allow for strict update of last use
of autofs dentrys (which just means not updating the last use on path
walk access).
