Yes, you need an XFS patch which does something with the filesystem UUID
in the snapshot.  XFS has a feature which prevents the same filesystem
from being mounted more than once.

What they do to fix this is to create writable snapshots.  What I would
rather they do is in the "duplicate UUID detection" code, allow mounting
of devices which are on read-only media (e.g. a snapshot).
