Good point @derobert. Do you know if I could look anywhere for those errors, like some system log?

comment Running dd. Why resource is busy?
@RuiFRibeiro turns out there are 2 processes currently holding the mounted volume. What I missed was running lsof and fuser with root privileges. After running both with sudo, I figured processes called mds and mds_store created over a dozen of files on the volume.

oh, this is interesting. I'm going to google for kernel locking now. Maybe you have some good resource on your mind where I could read about it?

comment Running dd. Why resource is busy?
@RuiFRibeiro I know, that make sense... But is there some other indication, apart from seeing /Volumes/UNTITLED and knowing it's automounted? Like, some logs, or some better some process responsible for taking the device?

comment Running dd. Why resource is busy?
Hi @thrig, thank you. Yes, I am able to unmount using diskutil, no problem with that. What I'm doing here is I'm learning how to identify problems in the system by saying "Yes" to any warning I can spot. I want to know why "Resource busy" is happening in the first place, not how to get rid of it. What exact process in the OS is making this happen?

Hi @RuiFRibeiro! Yeah, that makes total sense, I forgot about rdisk when writing this.

I compiled new kernel 4.4 with rewritten Realtek driver, and now can't connect to wlan0 at all. Any ideas? unix.stackexchange.com/questions/270469/loading-new-wlan-driver
