have you tried your proposal ?
from my point of view, it will not work because overlayfs locks inodes in some 
of his functions, therefore if a mount of overlayfs has an inode locked then 
another overlayfs mount will be waiting for the same inode but it can not be 
available until the current function had finished, the kernel wll detect this 
uncoherent situation and print a dump.
