Tests portability: umount(8)
1) Avoid hangs on unmounting NFS on NetBSD NetBSD umount(8) on a NFS mount whose server is gone will wait forever because umount(8) calls realpath(3) and tries to access the mount before it calls unmount(2). The non-portable, NetBSD-specific umount -R flag prevent that behavior. We therefore introduce UMOUNT_F, defined as "umount -f" on Linux and "umount -f -R" on NetBSD to take care of forced unmounts, especially in the NFS case. 2) Enforce usage of force_umount wrapper with timeout Whenever umount is used it should be wrapped in force_umount with tiemout handling. That saves us timing issues, and it handles the NetBSD NFS case. 3) Cleanup kernel cache flush. We used (cd $M0 && umount $M0 ) as a portable kernel cache flush trick, but it does not flush everything we need on Linux. Introduce a drop_cache() shell function that reverts to previously used echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches on Linux, and keeps (cd $M0 && umount $M0 ) on other systems.
