    Question Is it possible to mount a volume UNDER ramfs?


    Hi there.

    I was wondering if it was possible to mount a backing store underneath an existing ramfs instead of over the top.

    The idea is to use a ramfs system to boot an embedded Linux system as quickly as possible, and then once the system is up, fsck a hard disk volume then mount it under the already existing log files in the ramfs and sync the backing store so that the log files then end up in non-volatile storage.

    Cheers,
    Ian.
