    sys/kern: Make nlookup() keep ESTALE on retry
    This basically doesn't happen with autofs, but keep the return
    value with ESTALE instead of updating it with ENOENT on retry.
    01:30 (dillon) though you might want to return ESTALE if the second try fails
    01:30 (dillon) instead of ENOENT
    01:30 (tkusumi) why ?
    01:30 (dillon) so the user can distinguish between the two
