Your patch isn't working quite as intended, because of this
code in ext2_remount:

/*
* Mounting a RDONLY partition read-write, so reread and
* store the current valid flag. (It may have been changed
* by e2fsck since we originally mounted the partition.)
*/
sb->u.ext2_sb.s_mount_state = le16_to_cpu(es->s_state);
if (!ext2_setup_super (sb, es, 0))
sb->s_flags &= ~MS_RDONLY;

see, when we call ext2_setup_super(), MS_RDONLY is set, so
ext2_setup_super() doesn't write the superblock. That's
trivially fixed.

The below patch passes all the mount/remount tests I could think
of.
