I've now disable parallel boot in my system, so umountroot and mdadm
shouldn't be called cuncurrently anymore. But I still get lock-ups on
mdadm --stop. Umountroot is called before mdadm --stop, and all other
filesystems are unmounted before that, so I guess
there should be no `sync_page' in progress anymore. But I also have
swap on the raid, so maybe there's a problem?

As not even the magic SysRQ keys work, I can't provide any more
details. Any suggestions how I could debug this problem?
