> I see no evidence that this is a bug in Linux,

stat("/net/prodigy", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=4096, ...}) = 0
mkdir("/net/prodigy/tmp", 0777)         = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)

As you can see, a stat() is already done on /net/prodigy.
Event if it wasn't done, calling mkdir() ought to trigger the mount.
So this is *definitely* as bug in autofs.

Which one-line fix do you propose?

It's not that we don't want to address this, but rather that we want
to avoid introducing hacks to work around OS bugs.
