    autofs: fix autofs_v5_packet structure for compat mode
    Due to integer variables alignment size of struct autofs_v5_packet in 300
    bytes in 32-bit architectures (instead of 304 bytes in 64-bits architectures).
    This may lead to memory corruption (64 bits kernel always send 304 bytes,
    while 32-bit userspace application expects for 300).
