In some respects it's a "doctor it hurts when I remove my devices
without umounting the filesytem first" type situation.

I think we're closer. As I said to Dave in the other thread what if we
just flipped this around to allow the FS to takeover memory_failure()
rather than hoping that the device-driver can do the right up-calls at
the right time.

I do feel bad for not engaging sooner on this. Usually there's a
forcing function like Plumbers, or LSF to clear out the backlog.
