Subject[PATCH 03/38] VFS: Add read-only users count to superblock
Date
While we can check if a file system is currently read-only, we can't
guarantee that it will stay read-only. The file system can be
remounted read-write at any time; it's also conceivable that a file
system can be mounted a second time and converted to read-write if the
underlying fs allows it. This is a problem for union mounts, which
require the underlying file system be read-only. Add a read-only
users count and don't allow remounts to change the file system to
read-write or read-write mounts if there are any read-only users.
