I don't understand. I changed the kernel to use the read only device. I
expected this to work rw without caching but it does not. I have already
tried mounting root ro via the caching mtd block and although my system does
not fully start I can't see how I would get corruption ?
I have looked at the mtdblock_ro code and it seems you allow writing if flag
certain bits are set you allow writing. Do I need to set these somewhere ?
