Thanks very much for this helpful article.
I have a questions about mounted file systems within file systems.
Let's say within a ext3 root file system I create a file system foo at mount point /fooRoot.
I then create a node within the foo file system fooChild.
I then create sub node to fooChild, fooGrand.
Now I mount a ext2 file system on node fooGrand.
When a user tries to fopen( "/fooRoot/fooChild/fooGrand/someFile", "r" ) will that open request somhow be cleared through the foo file system before handed to the ext2 file system?
