[PATCH] vfs: introduce UMOUNT_WAIT which waits for umount completion




This patch introduces UMOUNT_WAIT flag for umount(2) which let user wait for
its completion. This would fix a kernel panic caused by block device access by
filesystem, after device_shutdown during kernel_restart. This can happen due
to delayed umount -- reboot process already succeeded to unmount filesystem,
but its instance is sitll alive.
