That is not possible with a normal filesystem.  When you mount the fs
readonly, it expects that nothing changes on the disk under it.
And you are doing.  You need a distributed FS, perhaps GFS will help

In theory, practice and theory are the same, but in practice they 
are different -- Larry McVoy
