aufs mount syntax with "br:" not supported #967
In the aufs manpage of the current version of aufs-utils, only the br: syntax for branch options is documented, the br= syntax is not mentioned. But lxc only supports the br= syntax, and it fails without any explanation if you try to use the other syntax.
Most mount errors are accompanied at least by an explanatory WARN level log message, but none of the "goto err" cases in aufs_mkdir() or ovl_mkdir() result in a log message, either directly or in the caller mount_entry_create_dir_file(). So all you get is a vague message like
lxc-start: conf.c: lxc_setup: 3920 failed to setup the mount entries for 'container-name'
If the mount is optional, you don't even get that much.

Sorry, I didn't realise I would have to spell this out. Yes, the kernel module supports both. lxc should similarly support both. #969 would break lxc for all existing users and I certainly would not recommend it. It is not difficult to support both. I'll submit a pull request if you like.
