[OpenWrt-Devel] pivot_overlay doesn't work anymore

I just tried to install the latest CC trunk (r43901) on my netgear
wndr4300, a router with NAND flash on that uses UBIFS.
I noticed that I cannot use an external /overlay anymore: while I can
mount the usb drive on any mountpoint, the '/overlay' target in
/etc/config/fstab is ignored and the rootfs is never switched to the new
The funny fact is that on another different router this doesn't happen:
that router however doesn't rely on UBIFS since it uses NOR flash.
So I tried to revert the latest change relevant to fstools (git-svn-id:
3c298f89-4303-0410-b956-a3cf2f4a3e73) and pivot_overlay began to work again.
I understand that commit is only an upgrade to the latest HEAD of
fstools: before starting to bisect I thought someone working on the code
could have an idea on what's really happening.
I'll try to bisect this evening if needed.
