For: Hardy Lum, netbook-lpia branch
unionfs does not have the delete=all mount option compiled
in. Enable this by adding -DUNIONFS_DELETE_ALL to CFLAGS.
Without the delete=all option configured one cannot mount
a unionfs without having to fallback on using whiteouts which
can consume a considerable amount of inodes to mark deleted
files. This can cause problems on unionfs systems with limited
inode reservations where storage is very limited.
