Description Bill Nottingham 2011-05-09 16:39:05 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #703203 +++

Created attachment 497858 [details]
Unified diff to fix the umount error in /etc/init.d/halt.

Description of problem:

If you have a mount point setup with the word "nfs" anywhere in the path, the mount will not be unmounted at reboot/halt time.

This also affects the keywords loopfs, autofs, cifs, smbfs, ncpfs, sysfs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a mount point called /shares and mount a device there.
2. Create another mount point called /shares/nfsfiles and mount a device there (in our case we use LVM volumes for both mount points).
3. sudo reboot
Actual results:

During the halt process you will receive "umount: /shares: device is busy" errors because /shares/nfsfiles was not unmounted.

Expected results:

The system unmounts /shares/nfsfiles then unmounts /shares.

Additional info:

This problem is caused by the awk statements in /etc/init.d/halt.  Specifically:

/(loopfs|autofs|nfs|cifs|smbfs|ncpfs|sysfs|^none|^\/dev\/ram|^\/dev\/root$)/ {next}

That will match the keywords anywhere in a line in /proc/mounts, so will match NFS mounts (nfs in 3rd column) and nfs in paths (/shares/nfsfiles in 2nd column).

The fix to this would be to change that awk statement to:

$3 ~ /(loopfs|autofs|nfs|cifs|smbfs|ncpfs|sysfs)/ {next}
/(^none|^\/dev\/ram|^\/dev\/root$)/ {next}

I've attached a unified diff file with the fix.

Thanks, added to git master as commit a8295af.

Note that this would require them not getting unmounted in netfs stop, unless I'm missing something?
