They generally don't mount their filesystems read/write, but only
read/only.

I've done similar things with FreeBSD in many systems (see: nanobsd)
but I don't have time or clue to figure out how to do that with Linux.

I belive that "busybox" is somewhat akin to nanobsd, but don't know
how to get that onto the BBB hardware.
