Forcing a NFS umount

# umount -l /mnt/point

This does a lazy umount which immediately detaches the drive from the filesystem, and then cleans up the mess afterwards. This is especially handy if it’s a networked file system (NFS etc) and the network has gone down.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
