unionfs-fuse Publisher's description
from Radek Podgorny
unionfs-fuse is an effort to create a userland unionfs implementation.
unionfs-fuse filesystem is an effort to create a userland unionfs implementation that is probably slower but way more flexible than the current kernel-only based unionfs solution.
Here are some key features of "unionfs fuse":
Why choose this stuff
??? The filesystem has to be mounted after the roots are mounted when using the standard module. With unionfs-fuse, you can mount the roots later and their contents will appear seamlesly
??? You get caching which speeds things up a lot for free
??? You get nice stats (optional)
Why NOT choose it
??? Compared to kernel-space solution we need lots of useless context switches which makes kernel-only solution clear speed-winner
