We use them fairly extensively with 2.7 and 2.8 and find them useful and stable.
For cluster nodes, perhaps not a big deal, but for our many non-cluster clients it is useful. We have multiple filesystems so sometimes many mounts. The main benefit I think is not that sometimes they unmount, but if there are ever issues and some filesystems temprorarily not available – much, much less pain.

Good morning, All.
We are considering using Lustre [2.8.0] with the Linux automounter.  Is anyone using this combination successfully?  Are there any caveats?  
(I did check JIRA, but only found two tickets concerning 1.x Lustre.)
Thank you in advance,
