Subject[PATCH 35/73] union-mount: Create prepare_mnt_union() and cleanup_mnt_union() [ver #2]
Date
From: Valerie Aurora <vaurora@redhat.com>

prepare_mnt_union() ties together all the mount-time checks and setup
for union mounts. It tests the layers for suitability and builds the
root union stack.

cleanup_mnt_union() unwinds everything prepare_mnt_union() does.
