Description

The "Erasure of the overlayfs read-write branch on shutdown" test scenario fails. But interestingly, "Tails erases memory on DVD boot medium removal: overlayfs read-write branch" passes. Looks like live-boot behaves slightly differently on overlayfs than on aufs, which seems to explain why mountpoints are not visible and can't be unmounted and thus cleaned.

anonym, you committed to handle the parent ticket this year (and I'm supposed to be the reviewer) but right now I fancy playing a bit with this ticket. If it becomes less fun I'll reassign to you.

I don't think it's worth spending time on this before #15477 is done: perhaps the revamping of how mountpoints are managed by live-boot will fix this problem, perhaps it'll make it harder to solve, but in any case better do the overlayfs-specific work only once, after that other migration is done.
