    SubjectRe: Union mount and overlayfs bake off?

    A couple of questions I have:

    1) What happens to the union in a cloned namespace (CLONE_NEWNS)?

    2) What's the overhead for non-unioned filesystems if CONFIG_UNION_MOUNTS
    is enabled? Does it show up in any microbenchmarks?

    3) Is there a future strategy for making atomic operations really atomic?
    E.g. what happens if power is lost in the middle of a copy-up? Or if
    whiteout of source fails after a successful rename()?

    4) Have you looked at overlayfs? Do you have any thoughts about the
    relative merrits of each solution?
