  LVM snapshots will do that. 
  # Make a COW snapshot of the LVM logical volume /dev/tests/woody-master
  lvcreate -s -l 1G -n test2626354 /dev/tests/woody-master
  # Make the snapshot writable (They are read-only by default)
  lvchange -prw /dev/tests/test2626354
  # Mount the snapshot and test away
  mount /dev/tests/test2626254 /mnt/test/2626254

 The test2626254 is just a unique id, it can be anything.
