I know it's not related to this thread but since it appeared here I add my word of advice to everyone. Do not
rely on something else to do "mntroot ro" for you. If you want to keep your root filesystem clean do it yourself as soon as you're finished modifying. Moreover if you do that during boot. The upstart scripts have tendency to pollute the root filesystem (strangely even to the point of preventing subsequent boot).
