To generate a diff of this commit:
cvs rdiff -r1.55 -r1.56 src/sys/fs/union/union_vfsops.c

May I kindly ask what the motivation was for this addition? Why here, and not in the man pages' BUGS section? Why not at least bracketed with "#ifdef DIAGNOSTIC ... #endif"?

How does it scale? There are a lot of things in the NetBSD kernel that "are experimental and could be unstable"...
