[slurm-users] job_container.conf:: how to adopt a autofs base mount point

Hi! I have a annoying problem with the namespaces and the shared attribute
of an autofs mountpoint...

so, there is a directory named /cvmfs where autofs will mount various directories
depending of the job requests.
these directories, named repositories they do not need to be defined, regardless
of the settings a job can request for mount any repository present on the defined upstream
(stratum-1) servers.

my problems is that, at any point before the actual job, if a apply a --make-rshared
on /cvmfs, autofs when will mount something within will reset this attribute.

is there a way to tell slurmstepd to somehow adopt and keep this mountpoint no matter
what is mounted within?

Thank you!
