Subject[PATCH 23/73] union-mount: Add union_alloc() [ver #2]
Date
From: Valerie Aurora <vaurora@redhat.com>

union_alloc() allocates a union stack with enough entries for the
maximum possible number of directories that might be unioned at this
point.

The union_stack may be larger than strictly necessary if this
directory does not exist on all layers, but allocating exactly the
right number would require keeping the number of layers in the
union_stack structure. We optimize for the case of unioning two file
systems and keep the count of layers in the superblock.
