This Blog is one of the more clearly written articles I have found on 'Net:
Just skim over "Step 4" - will probably not be used or needed for the Kindles.
Nor is it likely we will find a use for "Step 6" on the Kindles (we have USBnet, a regular network connection for file transfer).
So that Blog will not apply in part, but it is a well authored article for the newcomer.

Layered file systems (unionFS, auFS, others) are normally used to combine various existing file systems into what appears as (and works as) a single filesystem.
A very common example is the "Live CD" distributions where the distribution (read only) is combined with local (read/write) storage if the user selects that option.
Doing the inverse of that operation, where you start with all layers empty of content and use them to split (or filter) a single file system into multiple filesystems - - -
Not even Google will find anything on that - I never finished that part of the auFS write-up last December.
Not even Google can index something never published.
Google will find you the first two parts of the write-up. For this DIY-KeK application the end-user doesn't need to bother with those details, so those documents they can just ignore.
Those first two parts of the three part write-up where written/published as part of JRO's documentation - a highly technical audience, not our audience here.
