# Helper script for using a diskfile for the LOWER or UPPER+WORK
# filesystems.
#
# Example use a whole diskfile filesystem as LOWER:
# LOWER=!overlay-diskfile mnt/ disk.img
#
# Example use a diskfile partition 2 as LOWER:
# LOWER=!overlay-diskfile mnt/ disk.img 2
#
# Example use a subtree of a diskfile partition 2 as LOWER:
# LOWER=!overlay-diskfile mnt/some/path disk.img 2
#
# Example use a while diskfile as UPPER and WORK.
# The diskfile is mounted on "mnt".
# UPPER=!overlay-diskfile mnt/some/upper/path disk.img 2
# WORK= mnt/some/work/path
# Helper function to determine the mount offset for the partition, if any
partoffset() {
local X

# Only do something when invoked by overlay-boot

# .. and a diskfile is given
if [ -n "$DISKFILE" ] ; then

# .. and it's not mounted yet (for this subhost)
