Hmm, I don't think this is the correct fix.  We should never have
buffers still around once we unmount the log.  Can you try the patch

From: Christoph Hellwig <hch@xxxxxx>
Subject: xfs: fix buffer flushing during unmount

The code to flush buffers in the umount code is a bit iffy: we first flush
all delwri buffers out, but then might be able to queue up a new one when
logging the sb counts.  On a normal shutdown that one would get flushed
out when doing the synchronous superblock write in xfs_unmountfs_writesb,
but we skip that one if the filesystem has been shut down.

Fix this by moving the delwri list flushing until just before unmounting
the log, and while we're at it also remove the superflous delwri list
and buffer lru flusing for the rt and log device that can never have
cached or delwri buffers.
