Aufs was rejected merging because LKML people decided that linux

the union-type-mount (eg. UnionMount).
BTW, what is the current status of the union mount approach ?


Val has moved on to other projects, but David Howells has been working to refresh the union mount patches and post them upstream. Al and Christoph have been looking at the patches.

I think that it would be good to get those patches out so people can do a full comparison.
