[Bug 1398859] Re: unmounting NTFS causes mount.ntfs process to get stuck in eternal kernel deep sleep


The workaround doesn't work any more, and the test does not actually
depend on ntfs-3g any more, so this must rather be fixed in our base

  unmounting NTFS causes mount.ntfs process to get stuck in eternal
  kernel deep sleep

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Status in udisks2 package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Since Mid-November the udisks2 test (https://jenkins.qa.ubuntu.com/job
  /vivid-adt-udisks2/? shows it happened between Nov 13 and 19) exhibits
  a regression with NTFS: Unmounting causes the ntfs-3g process to go
  into kernel deep sleep and umount hangs forever.

  This can be reproduced with

    sudo apt install ntfs-3g
    sudo modprobe scsi_debug
    # check dmesg which drive this created; e. g. /dev/sda
    sudo mkntfs -F /dev/sda
    sudo mount /dev/sda /mnt

  Now you have a process which is happy:
  root     12821  0.0  0.0  15272  1948 ?        Ss   15:49   0:00 /sbin/mount.ntfs /dev/sda /mnt -o rw

  You can work with /mnt, edit files, etc. But now unmount:

    sudo umount /mnt

  This never returns, and  the process goes into uninterruptible kernel
  sleep ("D"):

  root     12928  0.0  0.0  15272  1948 ?        Ds   15:55   0:00
  /sbin/mount.ntfs /dev/sda /mnt -o rw

  The strace for the umount until the hang is

  ubuntu@autopkgtest:~$ sudo strace -vvtts1024 -p 12928
