Allow read only mounts for filesystems that do not have maximum timestamps beyond the y2038 expiry timestamp.
This option seems arbitrary and pointless.
Nobody sane should ever enable it except for testing, but for testing it would be much better to simply specify what the limit should be: 2038 is not magical for all filesystems, because the base may be different.
And honestly, for testing, it would be much better to just make it a mount option rather than some crazy system-wide one.
