What did you do?

I just tried it again, and get:

# umount /dev/da0s1
umount: unmount of /ipod failed: Resource temporarily unavailable

And that stays that way, until reboot, rendering the da0s1 device

umount -f produces an instant reset. No panic, nothing, just *zapp* and
the machine resets itself.

halt gives up on synching buffers after a while (or produces a panic,
like I got in earlier "attempts"), rendering the filesystems unclean on
the next boot.

That's on 5.4-STABLE of perhaps 1-2 weeks ago.
