Odd.  Well, "umount -f" actually doesn't do what most people think it
does.

The "force unmount" option looks for and kills any user-land process
holding a reference on the file system using "kill -9".

So, if you're getting EBUSY on unmount even though force-unmount is
working (confirmed by you looking at lsof/fuser), chances are good that
there's a kernel reference on the file system.

It could be something NFS related - try "service nfs stop" and see if
you can umount the file system.
