As it was discussed a while back on the mailing lists, Unionfs is trying to
be smart and tries to do reallocation on its own. The way it does it makes
it depend on some internals of the SLAB allocator. There have been some
patches out there for a realloc function (by Pekka Enberg, IIRC), but as far
as I can tell, they haven't been merged in.
