The trigger for busy inodes is as simple as (I=initialization done only
I> # dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/shm/ext3 bs=1024 count=1 seek=$((100*1024))
I> # mkfs.ext3 -m 0 /dev/shm/ext3
# mount -oloop /dev/shm/ext3 /mnt/c
# umount /mnt/c
# dmesg|tail
VFS: Busy inodes after unmount of loop0. Self-destruct in 5 seconds.
Have a nice day...

(The printk time varies -- this sequence really suffices.)

I don't know, now I'm going to play with that as I have the trigger ;).
Will be back soon.
