I don't think there's really a problem here - a warning is generated,
but I think it's just saying "hey, you wanted read only, but I'm going
to be read-write for a minute so I can play the log"
I have read-only specified in lilo on my xfs-only box, and while I see
this warning, everything works fine. Mounting a filesystem read-only on
the running system also behaves as expected.
