    Is renaming a regular file supported?
    Accrding to the change in "[PATCH 24/32] union-mount: in-kernel file
    copy between union mounted filesystems", every rename under union seems
    to be rejected.

    link(2) may be similar.
    When a "fileA" exists in the lower fs only, link("fileA", "new_file")
    will return EXDEV too.
