years ago i remember that this was no problem, however, just trick it 
out with a bind-mount

[root at rh:~]$ cat /etc/fstab | grep slash
/ /slash none  bind

[root at rh:~]$ mkdir /slash
[root at rh:~]$ mount /slash

[root at rh:~]$ ls /slash/
insgesamt 100K
drwxr-xr-x.   2 root root 4,0K 2011-06-08 13:17 boot
drwxrwxrwt    2 root root 4,0K 2011-06-09 13:27 clamav-quarantine
drwxr-xr-x.   2 root root 4,0K 2011-06-08 13:17 dev
drwxr-xr-x. 139 root root  12K 2016-01-17 23:13 etc
drwxr-xr-x    2 root root 4,0K 2011-06-15 22:16 home
