What you really want is something like Linux's bind mounts:

Yeah, bind mounts look like the thing we need. We don't have the mount or
bindfs (or the others listed) commands in PASE. AIX has a mount command
(n1) so that leads me to believe the underlying infrastructure the mount
requires might also exist in PASE and IBM determined to not port it for
some reason. AIX isn't open source but Linux is. Is this as simple as
porting the Linux mount command(n2)?
