Hi there,

In this thread I stressed Gusar's patience to get overlayfs running in 3.4.x. Now one month later I'm running into the same trouble with kernel 3.5.x

More exactly is the problem:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/mszeredi/vfs.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/overlayfs.v13
I applied the last 9 patches since linux 3.4 and got overlayfs running.

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/mszeredi/vfs.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/overlayfs.v14
shows me already linux-3.6. There were hundreds of following pages, which seems to me quite impossible to find all the relevant overlayfs patches for kernel 3.5

I wonder if there isn't a "simple" solution possible to patch overlayfs into the kernel sources.

Here you go: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git?p=ubuntu/ubuntu-quantal.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/tags/Ubuntu-3.5.0-11.11;pg=3 <- there's thirteen commitdiffs, just search the page for overlayfs and you'll see them.

Also, a few days ago a request was posted to the kernel mailing list to have overlayfs included into kernel 3.7. Hopefully it'll happen.

I think I would simply add remote with regular linux kernel, and do git diff between branch overlayfs.v14 and linux-tree/3.5 or something.
