Package: xfsprogs
Version: 3.1.7+b1
Severity: important
File: /usr/sbin/xfs_freeze

Dear Maintainer,
When xfs_freeze -f /some/path is executed and /some/path does not contain a
mounted file system the under lying (in my case root) file system was frozen, 
this then required travelling to the site to power cycle the machine. The
mount point normally hosted a removable drive, but it had been ejected.
 
Please have xfs_freeze return an error if the mountpoint argument does not
contain a mounted file system.
The documentation implies that the argument must be a mount point, but _any_
path provided as an argument will freeze the parent file system.
