Subject[PATCH 00/35] Union mounts - everything but the xattrs
Date
This patch series implements union mounts for every system call
except:

- xattr-related calls
- fchmod()/fchown()/futimensat() on an fd

The copyup portion is a proof of concept based around union_path_nd(),
which looks up both the target <mnt,dentry> pair and its parent's. If
the parent is on a union mount, and the target is on a lower layer, we
copy up the target.

This patch set is very raw and could use even the most superficial
review. Just take a look at Erez's review from December to see how
low-hanging the fruit is on this one.
