We have a scenario where a samba share from a windows host to a linux server 
died (windows server lost it's network connection).

Any df commands after the failure do not return, and are not killable.

Any suggestions, ideas as to how to prevent df from hanging if the samba share 
is lost, or how to kill it if it does hang.
