    Yes, I have tried to unmount the partition, however, it is impossible
    once the machine gets into this state.

    One thing that I have noticed is that when the load starts to increase,
    a manual sync, although it takes a long time, appears to keep off an
    immediate hang of the system. Once the load gets above 25 however, the
    machines spiral out of control.
