I've tried
to try the 'Bind Mount Extensions (RO --bind mounts)'

I've applied the patch on 2.4.24 and 2.6.3, without effects, ie

mount -t ext2 -o ro /dev/hdc7 /mnt/ro
mount --bind -o rw /mnt/ro /mnt/ro2rw
touch /mnt/ro2rw/test
touch: connot touch '/mnt/ro2rw/test': Read Only file system

have I miss something ?

curently, i'm running up-to date debian unstable with mount-2.12 and a patched version ( of 2.6.3

BTW, is this patch could work on NFS RO mounts ? I'm very interressted in it because y try to mount / from nfs RO. I've got some success with, But I'd would like test others approach.
