What is failing is the mount(something on /coda) system call. Most
likely /coda didn't get unmounted the last time venus was shutdown.

Like Steffen said in his mail, there are multiple possible reasons for
the umount to fail. You can try "umount /coda", if that fails any of the
causes he mentions could be the reason umount is failing.

lsof | grep /coda, and kill are your friends here.
