I think the fact that the filesystems mounted later are sitting on top of
nodes in the earlier-mounted filesystems will mess things up if we
unmount in mount order. For instance, unmounting / successfully will
invalidate all of the device nodes on which the other filesystems are
mounted. :-)

Take care,
