It works. Having the fs read-only does not mean you cannot write to
rootviolette[/root]#mount -o ro /dev/sd0a /
rootviolette[/root]#dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/null count=100
100+0 records in
100+0 records out
51200 bytes transferred in 1 secs (51200 bytes/sec)
What you can't do with /dev/null is set the immutable flag on it. That
way you won't be able to write to it.
