Subject: [GIT PULL] overlayfs update for 4.19

Hi Linus,

Please pull from:

  git:// tags/ovl-update-4.19

This contains two new features:

 1) Stack file operations: this allows removal of several hacks from the
    VFS, proper interaction of read-only open files with copy-up,
    possibility to implement fs modifying ioctls properly, and others.

 2) Metadata only copy-up: when file is on lower layer and only metadata is
    modified (except size) then only copy up the metadata and continue to
    use the data from the lower file.

The vfs bits have been reworked based on Al's open cleanup work.
