Need to re-check - guess i mix something here. Some bind mount features 
only start working properly at 2.6.26+ (bind mount ro, move etc). Bind 
mounting readonly some directory makes full disk read only, but thats 
not required anyway here.

On LVM how does one know which disk will be used ? thats the main 
advantage - that all "handling data" is on slow, low power, silent, cool 
harddisk, real data gets on the big ones.

Will test that
