I thinkb085fbe2ef7fa7489903c45271ae7b7a52b0f9ab  <>, deployed in 4.20,
does both of the things you want.

One case I ran across today that Windows handles, but Linux doesn't,
is write-protection via flags in the DomainIdentifier fields of the
Logical Volume Descriptor and File Set Descriptor. Linux allows
RW mount when those are marked protected, but Windows forces RO mount.
