Subject[GIT PULL] overlayfs update for 4.16
Hi Linus,

Please pull from:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mszeredi/vfs.git overlayfs-linus

This work from Amir adds NFS export capability to overlayfs. NFS exporting an
overlay filesystem is a challange because we want to keep track of any copy-up
of a file or directory between encoding the file handle and decoding it.

This is achieved by indexing copied up objects by lower layer file handle. The
index is already used for hard links, this patchset extends the use to NFS file
handle decoding.

There's a VFS patch that splits out d_instantiate_anon() from d_obtain_alias().
This is needed because overlayfs allocates d_fsdata for its dentries, so the
plain d_alloc_anon() call in d_obtain_alias() is not sufficient to create a
fully initialized overlay dentry. The patch conflicts with f1ee616214cb ("VFS:
don't keep disconnected dentries on d_anon"); fixup by "s/tmp/dentry/g" on the
upstream version.

Thanks,
Miklos
