[systemd-devel] [PATCH] fstab-generator: Support root on tmpfs

Hi Vasiliy,

I never used overlayfs myself, can you set up an overlayfs via the
kernel commandline arguments supported by the fstab-generator? Those
are device, options and fstype for the root and usr.

If a overlayfs setup can not be shoehorned into the (two times) three
flags we have support for in fstab-generator at this time, then I'd
say it is out of scope for this patch.

Best Regards,
