Bug Description

Whenever I reboot, if there are drivers mounted with corresponding folders in /media (whether internal or external, btfrs, ntfs, or ext4), after the reboot the original folder is still present and the drives re-mount in a new folder. (Note that I mount drives in /media instead of /media/<username> so that all users can access them, in case this is relevant.)

eg if there was a file mounted in /media/drive, after reboot there is an empty folder /media/drive and a new one /media/drive1 with the drive mounted in it. A subsequent reboot means there will be /media/drive, /media/drive1, and /media/drive2, and so on until I manually remove the old folders.

I'm guessing that the issue is that systemd is not unmounting the drives properly on reboot since is a problem in Ubuntu 16.04 as well as yakkety. It's unlikely to be a lack-of-time issue since sometimes on reboot systemd will wait for 90 seconds or more for the cryptfs swap to unmount before giving up.
