Subject: [PATCH 3/6] autofs4: make "autofs4_can_expire" idempotent.

Have a "test" function change the value it is testing can
be confusing, particularly as a future patch will be calling
this function twice.

So move the update for 'last_used' to avoid repeat expiry
to the place where the final determination on what to expire is known.
