Out of curiosity: what's the rational of mounting multiple diskless nodes on
one rw nfs root filesystem [with locking in place]?

In my experience, this results in a big mess. I depend heavily on diskless
setups, where I spent significant time to provide sharing as much data as
possible between the clients _without_ further interference. The best setup
I found to get there is using unionfs (which still has issues, mostly due
to missing/broken mmap support).
