Default mount.aufs doesn't work for directory any more


I used to be able to use mount.aufs to unify several directories and
provide a merged single directory.

>From mount.aufs man page, I should still be able to do that:

# mount -v -t aufs br:/day0:/base none /u
none on /u type aufs (rw,xino=/day0/.aufs.xino,br:/day0=rw:/
# mount -v -o remount,
none on /u type aufs (rw,xino=/day1/xino,br:/day1=rw:/base=ro)

But seems to me, now mount.aufs insists to work on mount point only.
I.e., the first mount command will give me error:

/sbin/mount.aufslink.c:223: AUFS_CTL_PLINK_MAINT: Inappropriate ioctl
for device

the 2nd:

mount: can't find /u in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

Please help.

PS. my aufs-tools
