Not that I know of.

The state is as follows: we (David Woodhouse, Bharata Rao, Erez Zadok and me)
agreed on a more or less final version of the whiteout patches. I haven't
posted them yet since I know that Al Viro isn't convinced of the idea that
they are actaully necessary. My plan was to solve the readdir() issues first,
because they are the biggest roadblock IMHO. Bharata worked on some glibc
readdir stuff but I don't know how that went.
