SubjectHow do I kill a process that is locked to a resource

My SCSI disk is having problems. This usually means that whatever process
has it open is busy, and cannot be killed in any manner, and so I cannot
umount the disk (or more properly, shutdown will hang forever at one of
these two points). So, I have to fsck every other open device after
hitting reboot.

Somewhere I saw that there would be a umount "force" option. I think
there should be that, and also a kill -REALLY_DO_IT option, or maybe
integrate this stuff into fuser.
