[bookmark=https://twitter.com/kernellogger/status/1318802411377643520]Among the overlayfs changes merged for #Linux #kernel 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… ).
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 #Nvidia's graphics driver by then won't be compatible to 5.9 yet…

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…
