Yikes. fuser(1) on vs. fuser(1) on :

To get all processes with open files on a filesystem on OpenBSD, use either:

fuser /dev/disk
fuser -c /some/mountpoint

For the same result on Linux:

fuser -c /dev/disk
fuser /some/mountpoint

Does not work on OpenBSD:

fuser /some/mountpoint

Does not work on Linux:

fuser /dev/disk

(Never mind that -c is just a Posix compatibility flag on Linux...)

@galaxis the actual posix standard for fuser is terrible and confusing. It's no surprise people implement it differently.
