This message can be wrongly printed because of at least #818442
(read-only /dev). In fact it gets printed only if `rm -fr /dev/shm`
fails, and there aren't too many possible causes for that apart from
genuine mount mishaps and #818442, so it might just be a variation of
it, involving some NFS code path apparently.
