If I understand what you are describing correctly, you’ll have kind of a sandwich with linoleum between two layers of plywood? Doesn’t seem wise to me, although I’d defer to others here with more...

Makes sense. Does the bottom plate of a half-wall like this need to be anchored to a floor joist for tile, or is gluing & screwing through both layers of subfloor sufficient?
