We only yesterday got around to testing. We tried
4.16.0-041600rc2-generic, and the issue persists. I think we can close
this issue, and I'll open a kernel-bug.

  OverlayFS not writeable

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  A customer of ours has a collection of servers in a test environment which
  mounts production data via NFS. The NFS is then mounted as the lower directory
  of an overlayfs, $directory_workdir is mounted as the workdir, and
  $directory_cow is mounted as the upper directory. However, as of recent, the
  customer can not edit any data unless the necessary files are 'touch'ed first
  (or if you use vim, force-written).

  "uname -a" returns "Linux <shortname> 4.4.0-104-generic #127-Ubuntu SMP Mon 
  11 12:16:42 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux".
