That hides all (0) files in /tmp/test, though, rather than

I haven't tried the NFS suggestion, so I don't know if it works,
but I suppose it does :) Unfortunately my kernel doesn't have any
nfs in it (client or server), and a rebuild & reboot would be too
much like trouble :)
Thansk all (esp. Dave Airlie & Philip Reynolds for the
information about loopback mounting, and how to do it on Solaris
(DA) and Linux (PR)).
