Hi John,

Would it be possible to enable/debug fsfreeze (bug 712689). Last time 
Scott tested it (reported in the bug), it froze and burnt. I am 
supposing the freezing is a kernel bug. The use case is being able to 
take crash consistent backups of cloud instances. Something currently 
only possible with xfs
