Except, the nfs mount is from the local host to the local host ...

I want to get at the unlying file system ... I have a real file system 
mounted as /vm, which /vm mounted as /du via nfs ... over top of /vm, I 
have several unionfs's mounted ... if I did a du of '/vm/dir', where dir 
is a union mount, I'd see all files on both "layers" ... if I do a du of 
'/du/dir', I only see the /vm layer ...
