I will log a ticket in a few days when I can build a simple test case
for support.

The workaround of have force_umount=0 and self_fence=1 worked with the
ISO image mount test.

I have learned that "fuser" command will not find the sub-mounted iso
image that causes the umount to fail.  So, my test case using the iso
image to test self_fence may need to be updated.

[root techval16]# df -k | grep data
/dev/mapper/share16vg-tv16_mq_data
                        806288     17200    748128   3% /test/data
                           352       352                 0 100% /test/data/mnt
[root techval16]# fuser -kvm /test/data
[root techval16]# echo $?
1
[root techval16]# umount /test/data
umount: /test/data: device is busy.
        (In some cases useful info about processes that use
         the device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1))
[root techval16]#

Unsure if the logic in fs-lib needs to be updated to handle
sub-mounted file systems.  That is what the Support Ticket will
determine, I suppose.
