The NetBSD Foundation, Inc.
System: NetBSD 9.99.77 NetBSD 9.99.77 (GENERIC) #42: Sat Jan 2 21:12:56 CET 2021 amd64
Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64

When using a read-only mount for / on a diskless client the mountall
rc.d script fails:

Mounting all file systems...
mount_nfs: emmas:/fire-below on /: Operation not supported
/etc/rc.d/mountall exited with code 1

This is with a /etc/fstab entry like:

# NetBSD /etc/fstab
# See /usr/share/examples/fstab/ for more examples.
emmas:/fire-below       /               nfs     ro
tmpfs                   /tmp            tmpfs   rw,-sram%30
tmpfs                   /var            tmpfs   rw,-sram%30
kernfs                  /kern           kernfs  rw
ptyfs                   /dev/pts        ptyfs   rw
procfs                  /proc           procfs  rw

It seems that NFS can not downgrade from a rw to a ro mount (this is bug 1)
and the kernel NFS mountroot code seems to alread mount / as read-write
(different than all other file systems mounted as root - this is bug 2).
