Remounting an XFS filesystem R/O can leave the FS in an
inconsistent state. (Playing with this for long enough can
hang mount up...)

This is partially working, rw->ro at shutdown works.
rw->ro on a running active file system will most
likely hang the system.
It is unclear this can ever be made to work correctly,
since it is hard to determine if the active vnodes are
open for reading or for read/write.
Some additional work in the linux vfs layers may be nessesary.
