    kernel - Try harder to unmount a filesystem
    * Use LK_TIMELOCK (5 seconds) instead of LK_NOWAIT when getting the mp
      lockmgr lock for unforced unmounts.
    * Remove the syncer vnode and issue VFS_SYNC prior to checking
      mnt_refs instead of after the check.  This appears to improve tmpfs's
      chances of unmounting, though it is a bit unclear as to why.
    * Wait up to 1 second for mnt_refs to drop to 1 before giving up.
    * Improves Poudriere's chances of successfully unmounting a tmpfs
