umount(0) will result in EFAULT; what are you talking about?

Sorry, I'd been unclear - where is it mounted? Is that the root filesystem?

Umm... What do you mean by system drivers? If it was held by userland processes,
then we are back to the same question - why has task_work_add() failed in fput()?
If it had been kernel threads, which files had they been holding open?

That might be more than one mount of the same fs (in different namespaces, for
example) with umount taking out one of those, with the other having been
hit with umount -l before that, with some opened files being the only thing
that used to keep it alive.

I'd like to see /proc/1/mountinfo and fuser output, TBH... I'm not familiar enough
with Android userland setup, so my apologies for dumb questions ;-/
