If you use the union file system, you can export '/usr/src' read-only
from the server. For example,
% mount -t nfs -o ro server:/usr/src /var/tmp/mnt/src
% mount -t union -o -b /var/tmp/mnt/src /usr/src
Changes made by the client to '/usr/src' are only local, as
'server:/usr/src' is read-only. A reference to file or directory
under '/usr/src' on the client goes to the client's version. If
the file doesn't exist locally, the reference falls through to
the server. See the man page for "mount_union".
