Recursive copy up will surely consume more space than an xattr?

We are jumping to a stack possibly wider than the current one and need
to find the layer where to continue the downward traversal. I'll add
the comment.

BTW I don't remember having tested this, so it might possibly be
buggy. Automatic multi-layer testing would really be good. What we
basically need is:

- create normal (two layer) overlay (with interesting constructs,
whiteout, opaque dir, redirect)
- umount
- create three layer overlay where the two lower layers come from the
previous upper/lower layers
- do more interesting things

There's one such test in xfstests but it would be good to have more.

Thanks,
Miklos
