I don't know what the problem is, so I certainly don't have
a solution for you. You'll need to provide a whole lot more detail
about your system and problem for us to make any sense of it.
Such as:

What hardware do you have (including storage)?

What's the storage structure (DM, MD, iSCSI, etc)?

Output of 'xfs_info <mtpt>'?

What are you really trying to acheive with the remount command?

Is the filesystem busy at the time the ro,remount is run?
(e.g. any large background writes occurring?)

Does the problem go away if you do:

# xfs_freeze -f <mtpt>
# xfs_freeze -u <mtpt>
# mount -o ro,remount <mtpt>

Or does the first freeze command trigger the same problem?
