Ignore the SD Lock on linux

Hello!

Since my SD card Lock switch is broken I can't make it bootable. I could completly remove the switch, but then my computer mounts this card for read-only.

Does anybody know a method to mound Locked SD card as read-write filesystem? I know, that locking mechanism is just a logical element and doesn't lock the card itself but tells the software that it can't mount it as R/W. Ho to ignore this information? Should change a source code of the drievr or is there a higer-level method? I'm working on Linux.

Yes, but that's not the answer. This method I've used already, but this way I can't use this cart as bootable (the lock switch is in unlock possition). I'm looking for software method to be aplied on linux.
