mdadm frozen and doesn't realize array is dead/missing failed due to unplugged drives

This was a surprising bug but I unplugged all drives for an array md127.  At first it was just 1 drive and mdadm seemed to notice this.  I unplugged the second drive taking the array offline but mdadm did not realize it was offline and still showed a non-existent disk as being part of it.  This created problems trying to unmount it or even to stop this array with mdadm freezing. 

As for how to fix it I can only think of making sure you are not in a mounted path of the array, unmount it and then manually stop the array but this didn't seem to work until the hung task kicked in.

mdadm --manage /dev/md127 --stop

 

The resulting kernel messages are what followed:
