Without backports you'd get linux-image-3.16.0-4-amd64 and with backports I 
think you'd get linux-image-4.2.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 so I'm guessing the problem is 
indeed with overlayfs and I don't know how to fix that. It could be that it is 
supported but you forget some config setting or it just doesn't work properly.

What you could try is create a preference file so that the kernel is taken 
from jessie and not jessie-backports (ie pin to version 3.16.* or sth like 
that) and see whether it works then. If it does work, you could stick with 
that and/or dive deeper into getting it to work with overlayfs.
