CONFIG_OVERLAY_FS_REDIRECT_DIR: Overlayfs: turn on redirect dir feature by default

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_OVERLAY_FS_REDIRECT_DIR:

Help text

If this config option is enabled then overlay filesystems will use redirects when renaming directories by default. In this case it is still possible to turn off redirects globally with the "redirect_dir=off" module option or on a filesystem instance basis with the "redirect_dir=off" mount option.

Note, that redirects are not backward compatible. That is, mounting an overlay which has redirects on a kernel that doesn't support this feature will have unexpected results.
