Wouldn't it be a good idea to ask Stephen to include your tree into linux-next?
Many people build linux-next manually or with a lot of rand-configs on
a daily base.

With Linux-3.6-rc1 merge-window I have noticed (for the first time) a
lot of merges which got pulled in "blindly" with the remark "matured
in linux-next".
So, chances will be higher that OverlayFS is more and better tested
and might be accepted (hopefully).
My 0.02EUR.

Your patch "vfs: export __inode_permission() to modules" can go
through Al's vfs tree?
When I saw [1] in the first pile of vfs patches for v3.6-rc1 (first
bits of/for union-mounts!) I talked with Andy that the export is
needed when OverlayFS is built as a module.
But I will comment separately on this.
