Quote from the 2nd link: "[…] # folks are complaining that #/# issues too many sync while installing packages and this slows down the image build […] So they are asking for mount options where they can disable sync on overlay mount point. […]"
[bookmark=https://twitter.com/kernellogger/status/1318802411377643520]Among the overlayfs changes merged for # # 5.10 (git.kernel.org/torvalds/c/071… ) are preparations for unprivileged ovl mounts and a "volatile" mode; the latter can improve performance for certain container setups by disabling sync on the overlay. (git.kernel.org/torvalds/c/c86… ).

Below issue might cause some trouble in #-land:

If the usual pattern holds, the first Fedora releases will likely switch from 5.8 to 5.9 in about three weeks from now (~when 5.8 goes EOL). But sounds like #'s graphics driver by then won't be compatible to 5.9 yet…
[bookmark=https://twitter.com/kernellogger/status/1317543570987954179]A # employee states their graphics drv will remain incompatible to the recently released # # 5.9 for another month: forums.developer.nvidia.com/t/nvidia-drive…

Guess that might be due to to a patch set from C. Hellwig that was discussed here and is in 5.9: lwn.net/Articles/82759…

Trying to get my head around this - are we using podman to spin up a container that is isolated like a VM ? If so - why?

better isolation; it's not a new idea and something some people seem to want, as Kata Containers, Firecracker, and a few others show

# 78.x was committed to the VCS and is now building for # 31, 32 and 33. I thus will likely head to the updates-testing repository in the next few days, before it will be shipped as regular update a bit later.
