Ok, finished my build, downloaded it and tested it.  It seems to work 
just as well for me on my thinkpad t22 (pentium 3 800, 512MB memory, 
60GB hdd) as the old unionfs version did.  It doesn't require the 
fixes-1 patch or the fix_builtin patch ether, just a plain build works. 
  I ran a dmesg | grep unionfs to make sure it was indeed 1.1.3, to make 
sure I didn't swap CD's.

I will see if this version will work on later kernels.  In any case, I 
was surprised that it worked, as the previous versions were less than 
stable.  Tonight I will try it on the i586 just for the 1% chance that 
it makes a difference.  ;)

The patch for 6.1.1 branch is below, if anyone wants it.  More to come.
