Hi Miklos,

Hmm...so there have been some changes in this patch. My original intention
was that to always open data inode (lower/upper) in ovl_open(). So if upper
inode is a metacopy only, I will open lower inode instead.

But new logic seems to be to always open real inode (that means upper
metacopy inode as well). And that means that later when read happens
on the file we will end up opening lower file, read data and close
lower file.

I am concerned a bit if there are performance implications to this.
This will be hot path for containers.

Thanks
Vivek
