It's funny you mention this - the Debian maintainer of hibernate, Martin
Krafft, implemented a similar thing for a different reason (modifying
GRUB's menu.lst on an xfs /boot would never get written back to disk
before the suspend started, no matter what sync invocations you
As this is (somewhat) a superset of the current functionality, I'm
inclined to merge something like this (and Debian can include a
backward-compatibility option if desired). What are your thoughts,

Can we call it "RemountRO" or something more specific?
Otherwise the patch looks okay. I'll wait for Martin's input.

This I think is fraught with danger, at least if it's going to be
editing fs's directly. I'm also not entirely sure how it would work
either. The scripts that do required fsck'ing on boot don't get called
upon resume. Or am I missing something else?
