Pam mount uses `ofl` from hxtools [1] to kill processes that have openfiles on the filesystem mounted.As we dont have hxtools (and I think we shouldnt), one has to configurepam mount to use something else, eg `fuser`. This is an attempt todocument that somehow.

It’s not clear what these two lines mean. The idea is to tell users toconfigure PAM Mount to use ‘fuser’ as a replacement for ‘ofl’, right? Ithink that’d deserve one or two sentences of explanation. WDYT?
Thanks,Ludo’.

Yes, that is/was the idea, because killing processes would not workotherwise.Now that we have autofs, I don't think it's relevant any more, so we canclose it?
