The IP is stopped before disk devices are stopped.

See the "child types" in service.sh.  IPs are started next-to-last
(scripts are started last).

If you do a typical configuration where the NFS exports are children of
file systems, and clients are children of exports, your IP will start
after NFS exports are complete and the IP will be taken off before the
NFS exports are unexported.

That's how NFS failover needs to be done, actually.
