what state does it show up in top (or ps -o pid,state <pid>)?  if kill -9
doesn't help (i'm assuming you tried that) and it's in state "D" and
you'll have to reboot before it will go away.  yes, i recognize the irony :)

if it's really blocking a reboot you can take it to single user mode,
unmount or remount read-only everything, and hold in the button...
