There seems to be a lot of superstition surrounding nullfs, but I only
know of one outstanding reproducible problem with it in -current (sockets
and fifos aren't handled correctly and cause panics.) If you can spare the
time to experiment, I suggest trying it, then filing a PR if you encounter
any problems. There's no guarantee that these problems will be addressed
right away, but it will give others more solid information than rumours
to go by when deciding whether or not to use nullfs, and well-documented
problems are much more likely to get fixed.
