feature-request: fs mounted only once



Hi.

Would it be hard to somehow make sure that a filsystem can only be
mounted once? Shared storage is a pain and it would be nice if one could
guarantee that a filsystem is only mounted by one computer.

I guess this _might__maybe_ be implemented by using a block on the
filsystem as "ping"-block. Mount would write a "ping" to this block, The
kernel would then have to check this block, say, each second and repond
to ping by writing a "pong".

This, of course, only makes sense when the filsystem in an unclean
state.
