Thank you very much for this elaborate trace.
I will recompile the kernel in the next couple of days. For now I'm using
the unfs3 server.
Isn't this a case for opening a bug for the kernel team?
I would suggest to update the squash patch and enable the exports.
I also would like to have the aufs module compiled this exports enable by
Anyone have suggestions on how accomplish this? A launchpad bug or submit a
patch is the best way of contact the kernel team?
