  SSH sockets on overlayfs report connection refused

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Reusing a master ssh socket that is created on an overlayfs mount
  reports connection refused, while on real filesystems or on tmpfs it
  works fine.

  Steps to reproduce (/var is ext4, /tmp is tmpfs.):
  # mkdir -p /var/overlayfs-socket
  # cd /var/overlayfs-socket
  # mkdir root rofs /tmp/cow
  # mount -t overlayfs -o "upperdir=/tmp/cow,lowerdir=rofs" overlayfs root
  # ssh -NMS root/socket alkisg@localhost
  alkisg@localhost's password: [****]

  And on another tab of the same terminal:
  # ssh -S root/socket alkisg@localhost ls
  Control socket connect(root/socket): Connection refused
  alkisg@localhost's password: 

  The problem is in the last line, on real filesystems or on tmpfs it
  doesn't ask for a password, it reuses the existing socket.
