(Nearly) full tickless operation in 3.10
I have an external SATA drive that I use for backups. Occasionally I have need to do:
> umount /backup
> e2fsck /dev/sde1
However, the fsck fails because systemd has locked the device.
I have tried systemd stop of various unit names, but have never found the right one to make systemd not hold a lock on the device.
