Is it possible to install aufs3 utils without kernel module (I find out-of-kernel modules very hard to handle so I prefer to apply patches on kernel)?

Of course you can. If you need separate ebuilds for aufs[2|3]-standlone and/or aufs[2|]-util checkout this topic 889918. There's as well an ebuild for vanilla kernel with aufs[3] patches as the defaults patch stack, there are a few other patches that can be enabled by USE flags.

EDIT: those ebuilds are based on [a slightly customized] git-2 eclass... so you'll need that eclass of course, otherwise the official eclass will fails to switch to a tag ["branch"]. I think there's a single reject with kernel 3.0.4 which can be easily fixed. I did not fix it in the ebuild so use 3.0.3 instead or else fix that yourself... that can be easily done if you need kernel 3.0.4. Well, there's nothing particular in 3.0.4 aside from drivers fixes, so you can check out lkml release mail to see if you need that revision or not.

In the mv overlay (available e.g. by layman) you will find ebuilds for aufs and aufs-util, the former doing full kernel patches, the latter installing[/url] only the utils.
