Thanks, please CC nbd-general@lists.sourceforge.net,
linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org as well.

So this patch simply does not cleanup the blockdevice to avoid any
errors on the filesystem side. The userspace thread that called
NBD_DO_IT will exit immediately before the filesystem decided to release
the blockdevice. The nbd driver assumes that the shutdown was done and
accepts new clients setting up sockets and so on. Couldn't this lead to
a lot of problems?

Currently NBD_DO_IT returns when it is save to use the NBD device again.
This patch changes this as the blockdevice may still be in use when
NBD_DO_IT returns. I think it would be better to delay NBD_DO_IT until
everything is cleaned up and all filesystems are closed.

Best Regards,

Markus
