[systemd-devel] more verbose debug info than systemd.log_level=debug?

First thought: Even without the exit code or anything, it's going to be
-EBUSY like 99.999% of the time. Not much else can fail during umount.

And ”Filesystem is busy" would perfectly fit the earlier error message
which you overlooked:

"Process 304 (plymouthd) has been marked to be excluded from killing.
It is running from the root file system, and thus likely to block
re-mounting of the root file system to read-only."

So you have a process holding / open (Plymouth is the boot splash screen
app) and the kernel doesn't allow it to be umounted due to that.
