I tried to unmount a partition on netbsd-amiga and netbsd-i386 but
it does not work. It just hangs..
I tried mounting it with mount_nfs -i nfsserver:/filesystem /localfilesystem
and with mount_nfs nfsserver:/filesystem /localfilesystem.
It does not matter. The nfs server was switched of after the mount.
Netbsd was not able to unmount it. I had to start the nfs server again
to be able to do it.
Is this a expected behaviour?
What for is umount -f? Only for local filesystems? The manpage contains
no hints for that..
