    Yes, you are right. And yes, this may be the way to enforce this. Just
    - ext2 maintainers may not like you :-). It _needs_ to be optional -
    I'm not going use this on safe machines until 3.16.31 :-).

    Besides ncpmounting novell server and not umounting it is enough
    sabotage, already. Novell server will of course crash / be rebooted
    soon. And linux can not handle _that_. What about making linux support
    some kind of force unmount?
