-----Original Message-----The Ubuntu LTS kernels contain patches back ported by them from upstream and
their own patches which are usually prefixed by UBUNTU. UBUNTU patches are often
based on BUG reports on launchpad.
As for overlayfs, it seems that UBUNTU has cherry-picked quite a few patches by
the main maintainer Miklos Szeredi. UBUNTU patches were mostly added by Seth Forshee
but I couldn't find any review online.
I think it would be nice to have a rough overlook by the maintainers. And we should also
test them ourselves thoroughly. For example, running LXC with overlayfs.
