From: Chen Qi <Qi.Chen@windriver.com>

This patch tries to make a union mount in live image. For example,
if aufs is enabled with the aufs-enable.scc configuration fragment,
the init-live.sh script will use aufs to make a union mount.

Although overlayfs is not supported by Yocto kernel yet, this patch
still takes it into consideration with the expect that the related
code should at least serve as a placeholder.
