Thanks for your quick answer.
In fact, I have read the discussion in #627837 already, plus some
others, read that aufs is going to die, etc. And I can't make up my mind
with what's going to happen, if aufs will stay or not. I am not
interested in arguing, about bug severity and such, and I don't feel
like I know enough to be able to help with the kernel stuff, unfortunately.
I'm just seeking for advices and directions here. I wanted to know if,
in your opinion, I should aim at unionmount rather than aufs, if using
aufs right now is a bad idea, and if you think unionmount will be "soon"
available for me to play with.
A very quick answer would be enough...
If that pisses you off and you think I'm wasting your time, never mind,
and thanks for the huge kernel work.
