Which data do you mean? By the time I instigate a shutdown, I've saved
my data and, if at home, copied to my server. So I'm hoping that's safe.

By the time these Stop jobs start running, there are just system
processes running. I don't really care about them as long as the
filesystems get unmounted. Almost anything is better than a forced
poweroff followed by fscking saying things at the next boot.

At the time I had the timeout-increasing problem, I was still focussed
on getting Start jobs to succeed, particularly when the kernel
"forgot" to load binfmt_misc (for help on which, I thank you again).
