            Bug ID: 193584
           Summary: [autofs] problem when resolving maps with partial path
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.0-CURRENT
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: Needs Triage
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org

When an indirect map returns:


and we are looking up www-bar the strncmp in node_find() will match on www
already and try to mount that;  if parts of the path are expanded from the key
facilitating the & we might try to mount

/auto/foo/www-baz from filer:/totally/different/path/&

I have tried to figure out how to fix that strncmp without much luck running
into other assertion failures due to path being an empty string for the initial
map lookup it seemed, so I added some extra comparison to the child loop, which
should catch all cases still but handling a possible trailing / makes it look
ugly.  Trying to avoid a possible strdup() failure, I am using two strlen() and
a strncmp() on the longer path; obviously one could also check the lens to be
equal first.

Here's a part of the diff with all debugging etc. in it still:

         found = node_find(child, path);

+            tl = strlen(tmp);
+            pl = strlen(path);
+            if (path[pl-1] == '/')
+                pl--;
+            pl = (pl > tl) ? pl : tl;
+            if (strncmp(tmp, path, pl) == 0) {
+                log_debugx("found match %s %s %s %zu", tmp, path,
found->n_key, pl);
+                free(tmp);
+                return (found);
+            }
+            free(tmp);
+        }

     return (node);

I am sure there is a better, proper solution and I am willing to test.
