    Umm, not sure why we'd need cooperation from the fs. Simply wait for
    the operation to exit the filesystem or driver. If it's a blocking
    operation, send a signal to interrupt it.

    Sure, filesystems and drivers have lots of state, but we don't need to
    care about that, just like we don't need to care about it for
    remounting read-only.

    Thanks,
    Miklos
