SubjectCan't umount after SIGKILL
I have found that if I have a process which is running on a mounted
filesystem, and I kill -9 that process, the filesystem is unable to be
umounted. It thinks the filesystem is still in use. /proc/*/cwd includes
nothing in the directory, and all the processes in there were certainly
killed anyway. Is this something that's broken, or should umount allow -f
(whether that's kernel or app I'm also not sure)?
