SubjectRe: [PATCH 00/32] VFS based Union Mount (V3)

Is there any chance this will support NFS? I can union-mount tmpfs over
nfs mounted fs, but if I try to mount --union two NFS filesystems I
always get -EBUSY on second mount on the same mountpoint.

Something along these lines:

doesn't matter if I use --union on first mount, the result is always the
same.

mount <--union> -t nfs server:/export/system /mnt
OK
mount --union -t nfs server:/export/profile /mnt
mount.nfs: /mnt is busy or already mounted

I patched mount.nfs so it knows about MS_UNION, and strace shows me that
it passes that flag to kernel.
