I'd appreciate it if folks could EMail me any open issues they have with
layered file systems. I'm especially looking for locking related panics,
and how unionfs is working. Repeatable test cases are best.

I've always worried about unionfs, and felt its locking botches could
cause panics. But last time I tried a few make -j 4's, it did fine. I'm
not certain this means it's fixed, just that I can't get it to break. :-)

I'm aware of the files-not-disapearing-on-delete issue, and that we get
the use counts wrong for layered device nodes. I'm looking to see if any
other issues are out there.
