I attached a systemtap script (x86-64 specific) which prints stack use
for stacked overlayfs filesystems. Interpret output like this:

7288 0 ovl_lookup (bash/5721)
^ ^
| |
| +- function name (process/pid)
|
+------------ current stack use

7080 208 ovl_permission (bash/5721)
^ ^
| |
| +- stacking depth indicated by indentation
|
+------ stack increase from previous stacking level


You can try it on various setups (overlayfs being used as the lower
and/or upper level) and executing various filesystem operations.

Looks like "copy up" is the most stack hungry operation, it may be worth
trying to reduce its stack usage.

Thanks,
Miklos
