option to mount rootfs as read-only

similar to the reason of /ticket/5886.html

Can OpenWRT provide an option "rootfs read only" default "N" in "/etc/config/system"?

  1. always mount rootfs ro when boot
  2. remount rootfs rw in later bootup stage if option "rootfs read only"=N or not found
  3. provides command for user to toggle rootfs rw/ro

This can make OpenWRT more resistant to misconfigured software. Please kindly consider. Thanks in advance.
