It sounds like you are mounting the disk by NFS?  That would be a very
important detail about this problem.  df will try to report NFS mounts
and if the kernel blocks then you will be stuck in the kernel.

If so and the NFS server stops responding then that is just the way
that it is.  A long standing problem with NFS mounted filesystems.
Depending upon many things it is possible that only a reboot will
clean up from some NFS problems.

Note that 'df -l' will lists local drives only and avoids hanging on
the blocked NFS mount.
