AFAIHH read-only mounts in Linux are only for data, not for
metadata (mika from Grml cursed a lot about it). The kernel
at least does journal replays for journalled filesystems that
are dirty, and of course it updates the superblock with what-
ever time it currently thinks right.

If it’s true that the timezone is stored there as well, this
isn’t actually needed, just a change to Linux to read it out
and use it (upon boot / first-time setting).
