Vyacheslav,

The series looks good.
In case you post another version please add:
Reviewed-by: Amir Goldstein <amir73il@gmail.com>

No need to repost just for that.

Did you happen to run xfstests on these patches?

If I am not mistaken, tests overlay/068 and overlay/069 provide
test coverage to the check in ovl_lower_uuid_ok() for the case
of lower null uuid (lower overlayfs) and user opt-in to new features
(nfs_export), so tests would have caught the bug you had in v2.

Please verify that I am not wrong (about test catching v2 bug) and
that v3 passes at least:
./check -overlay -g overlay/quick -g overlay/union

Please see README.overlay in xfstests for setting up to run
./check -overlay and the unionmount tests.

Thanks,
Amir.
