Parent article: Overlayfs for 3.10
One of the typical deployment scenarios for a union type filesystem (actually the one I currently use aufs for) is diskless clients where /etc is made from 2-3 components:
global(ro), client-specific(rw via NFS), local (optional, rw on ramdisk)
AFAIR this can not be done in overlayfs. So this is going to be worthless for the diskless crowd right?
