    Not quite. As mentioned a little earlier, you need to add "through this
    mount." It's a state of the mount, not the kernel image.

    It's a good point, though, that we shouldn't kid ourselves that having a
    mount in read-only state means the filesystem is read-only. In the cases
    where it does, though, it's an especially useful state.
