Well, simply insert sth. like this into ./fs/ntfs/fs.c:parse_options()

printk(KERN_EMERG "You're likely to crash your NTFS if you do any "
"write attempts to it. NTFS write support is broken and for "
"developers *only*. Do only use this if you're debugging it, "
"never ever use this on data you'd like to see tomorrow "
"again!!! Please remount in read-only mode *now* or don't "
"complain afterwards!");
