 I see this problem when autofs-managed filesystems have not yet been
 accessed (auto-mounted), but one performs an 'ls' of the directory in
 which the autofs parent resides.
 Say "/x" is an autofs-managed directory.  If no access has been made to
 "/x" specifically, 'ls /' will display "Operation not supported" right
 after "x" is displayed in the 'ls' output.
 Once one accesses content residing in "/x", say 'ls /x/foo', then a
 subsequent 'ls /' no-longer reports a error when "/x" is encountered.
 If the fix works on -HEAD, it should be pulled up to -9 as well.
