AFAIK aufs2 is just aufs rewritten to get rid of design problems, I
guess you can use it the same as aufs. I never tried though. (For
details, see the first link in my reply to Dan).

This patch was for 2.6.28, and it only exports some symbols which are
otherwise not exported (according to Christopher, this patch gets even
smaller with .29):
Other than that, there is a patch for ecryptfs (I don't know why,
probably to make it work with aufs) and a new directory fs/aufs/
About unionfs: No idea.
