The unmount failed beause xfs thought something was still busy, but the
kernel did not. Looks like a reference count leak somewhere in the old
That's what I figured. I'll definitely move this to the top of "reasons

XFS-patched RHEL kernels ready to go... ;)
If you reboot and run repair you should be ok.
I found some mention of this on the mailing list where it was suggested
to `mount -o nouuid`. This worked for me - the filesystem recovered
itself, and I see the freed space now.
You still have a dangling dead mount inside the kernel, a reboot at an
opportune moment will clean that up.
