    SubjectRe: [RFC] Union Mount: Readdir approaches

    The approach unionfs-2.1.2 took differs from mine.
    Major difference is,
    - in this approach, the cache in struct file is the completed virtual
    disk block for the dir.
    - readdir doesn't have to call vfs_readdir when the cache exists and is
    valid. simply calls filldir.
    - it supports SEEK_END.
