Add an AT_NO_AUTOMOUNT flag to suppress terminal automount

Add an AT_NO_AUTOMOUNT flag to suppress terminal automounting of automount
point directories.  This can be used by fstatat() users to permit the
gathering of attributes on an automount point and also prevent
mass-automounting of a directory of automount points by ls.
