[PATCH] autofs: clear O_NONBLOCK on the pipe.

autofs does not expect the pipe it is given
to have O_NONBLOCK set - specifically if __kernel_write()
in autofs_write() returns -EAGAIN, this is treated
as a fatal error and the pipe is closed.

For safety autofs should, therefore, clear the O_NONBLOCK flag.

Releases of systemd prior to 8th February 2019 used
and thus (inadvertently) set this flag.
