There's a discussion on -current called "Re: [RFC] [PATCH] VM & VFS  
changes" which may help resolve the issue of unmounting and flushing  
the tree of filesystems more cleanly, which you should look into and  
be willing to test as code comes out.


PS: I understand that you'd rather the underlying problem be fixed,  
but it's a lot easier to wish for things to happen than it is to code  
them.  That's why hard problems tend to stay unfixed for long periods  
of time, and why people learn to use workarounds when they are offered.

It would be more helpful if you either learned to fix the stuff you  
choose to complain about, or would at least gracefully accept  
workarounds which help, even if they may be "quick and dirty fixes"...
