How can one check if a device can be safely unmounted at the moment.
Sometimes umount fails as the device is busy. Is there a way to check
if the device is busy, without unmounting? The umount manpage does not
discuss this situation.
(fuser -mv /$mnt_point) is relatively standard.
lsof is quite a bit more powerful and complete, and available for Debian.
Neither of those commands "see" NFS exports.
Dissent is patriotic, remember?
