/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit currently gets the relies on getting $READONLY
/etc/sysconfig/readonly-root. It uses this to determine whether or not to
call /etc/rc.readonly and whether or not to remount the root filesystem in
In some instances (think flash based filesystem), it would be desireable to
run the rc.readonly script (we don't want to burn up the flash), but still
have the root filesystem in read-write mode (we still want to be able to do
some filesystem editing). Maybe rc.sysinit could check two separate
variables to control this?
$EXEC_RC_READONLY or whatever you would want to call it, could be used by
rc.sysinit to determine whether or not to exec rc.readonly. And $READONLY
could still be used to determine whether or not to remount root read-write.
What exactly are you trying to do - bind mounts for temp state + rw fs?
