Re: overlayfs (was: Re: support for merged /usr in Debian)

I am using overlayFS in Limba[1], and it works well (and is really
fast!) for read-only filesystems, read-write sometimes has issues if
you are using multiple OverlayFS layers (which made me adjust the code
so this doesn't happen anymore).

Did you use Linux 4.2 and were maybe hit by this bug:
