     NAME
          stub - provide mount point stubs

     SYNOPSIS
          aux/stub [ -Dd ] path/name

     DESCRIPTION
          Aux/stub union mounts itself before path in the name space.
          It serves a file system containing a single entry, name,
          with file mode 0.  The intent is to provide a place to bind
          or mount other resources.  The options are:

          -D   print all 9P messages

          -d   make name a directory; by default it is a file

     EXAMPLE
          Use stub and sshnet (see ssh(1)) to create a new network
          protocol ``mit'' that is actually TCP tunneled via SSH to a
          machine at MIT:

               % sshnet -m /net.alt amsterdam.lcs.mit.edu
               % aux/stub -d /net/mit
               % bind /net.alt/tcp /net/mit
               % con -l mit!plan9.bell-labs.com!whoami
               connected to mit!plan9.bell-labs.com!whoami on /net/mit/0
