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
