Re: INFO: task umount:1524 blocked for more than 120 seconds

well, I'm confused on this one..

If I cp -R 2.6.34(kernel) using the macbook pro
I can umount cleanly. But if I do the same for
the iMac9,1 I get this issue.

At first thought this might be an ext4 sync(and possibly)
hardware issue but if it was, then the macbook would portrait
similar issues as well(but could be wrong).

I did add(hopefully)the firelite device to the
workaround list with as many options as possible,
but had no difference(added/removed options as well)
here is what the patch looks like:

I'm might be wrong with the .firmware_revision and model
which I got echo 1 > /sys/module/sbp2/parameters/workarounds

only thing I didn't test was adding this patch, then doing
the echo command(not sure if it matters or not though).
