Hi, I just want to add my "me too" to this effort in general.  I 
probably have issues with the code... I know I did last time I looked 
at it, but I have no issues with the sentiment.  Hopefully I'll get 
time to help swing the sledgehammer soon.  I'm thinking, we might try a 
device-mapper specific forced umount that works especially well for 
anything mounted on device-mapper targets.  Or maybe a 
device-mapper-only version.

I'll grab this and read it on the plane, if my laptop power doesn't run 
out first :)
