The problem with the current unionfs implementation is that it doesn't
use the Linux VFS, and so many tricks have to be implemented to allow
gobohide to work on it. I've decided not to touch it after some
unionfs patches, conforming to the VFS, were submitted to the
linux-fsdevel mailing list. I'm not tracking the kernel Changelog for
some months, but I guess it's going to be merged mainline soon.

I've made a kernel recipe based on the patches submitted to that list,
but I didn't take the time to test and finish it. I'm attaching it
here, just in case you want to check it out. Also, you might need to
adjust the gobohide patch and fix the diffs - I didn't do that for
this recipe. The patch you're more interested there is
'02-unionfs-2.0.patch'. The others are merely this patch splitted in
many parts.

No problem.
