I am comparing the behavior of FUSE and NBD when attempting to hibernate
the system.

FUSE seems to be mostly compatible, I am able to suspend the system even
when there is ongoing I/O on the fuse filesystem.

With NBD, on the other hand, most I/O seems to prevent hibernation the
system. Example hibernation error:

  kernel: Freezing user space processes ...

(this is with ZFS on top of the NBD device).

As far as I can tell, the problem is that while an NBD request is
pending, the atsk that waits for the result (in this case *rsync*) is
refusing to freeze. This happens even when setting a 5 minute timeout
for freezing (which is more than enough time for the NBD request to
complete), so I suspect that the NBD server task (in this case nbdkit)
has already been frozen and is thus unable to make progress.

However, I do not understand why the same is not happening for FUSE
(with FUSE requests being stuck because the FUSE daemon is already
frozen). Was I just very lucky in my tests? Or are tasks waiting for
FUSE request in a different kind of state? Or is NBD a red-herring here,
and the real trouble is with ZFS?

It would be great if someone  could shed some light on what's going on.
