Here is the captured /var/log/messages when the system is hung by the
mount command on a xfs file system and I issued the 'echo w >
Note that I may have run multiple times of the above command, and that I
was also issuing the xfs_freeze commands while the mount is hung. I
hope that these commands does not corrupt the /var/log/message that you
want to examine.

Been busy at my day job - I haven't had much time to look into this
FWIW, w.r.t to the question about xfs_freeze -f hanging the system, I
meant doing that instead of remounting read-only, not after the remount
has already hung. Can you try that and see?
Also, the output of 'echo w > /proc/sysrq-trigger` once the system is in
the hung state will tell me a lot about what has gone wrong.
