I haven't tried mixing it with NFS, but you can certainly convert a
local directory tree to read-only via
mount -t overlay -o rdonly / /path/to/desired/tree
The first non-option argument ("/" in the above example) has to be a
directory that exists, but I don't know the reason for this. I would
have expected any arbitrary string to work.
