[OpenWrt-Devel] Extroot on Barrier Breaker 14.07-rc3

I am unable to get extroot (pivot overlay) working with 14.07-rc3 on a TP-Link
TL-WDR4300 <http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-wdr4300> . In the past I
have been able to with Attitude Adjustment 12.09.

I pluged in my USB flash drive, formated it (both ext3 / ext4), mounted it,
duplicated the data ( tar -C /overlay -cvf - . | tar -C /mnt/sda1 -xf - )
and edited fstab with no love after the reboots.

via ssh in /etc/config/fstab I've tried using:

config mount
        option target        /overlay
        option device        /dev/sda1
        option fstype        ext3
        option options       rw,sync
        option enabled       1
        option enabled_fsck  0


config 'mount'
        option  target  '/overlay'
        option  uuid    '3aea4f6c-10cb-4ca9-919d-624f12656e37'
        option  enabled '1'

and probably several other permutations. Also, I've used the web interface.

Is the wiki out of date?

Any guidance is appreciated.
