Hello list!

I have an external HDD connected with usb from dmesg i get this

umass0: <Generic External, class 0/0, rev 2.00/2.10, addr 4> on usbus5
umass0:  SCSI over Bulk-Only; quirks = 0x4000
umass0:7:0:-1: Attached to scbus7
da0 at umass-sim0 bus 0 scbus7 target 0 lun 0
da0: <Generic External 2.10> Fixed Direct Access SCSI-4 device

da0: 953869MB (1953525168 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T 121601C)

df -hi say this

pid 83024 (dd), uid 1001 inumber 2 on /usr/home/bernt/usbdisk: out of inodes

softdep_waitidle: Failed to flush worklist for 0xffffff0008ab82f0

What is going on? I can cd to the disk but not copy to or from the disc.
A reboot fix the problem but I think it should not be that way.

umount -f /dev/da0.eli
umount: unmount of /usr/home/bernt/usbdisk failed: Device busy
