In the House of Commons, a simple majority has been enough to enable "the guillotine" since Gladstone's time. It was necessary to overcome the deliberate obstruction of the Irish members.
It needed a change in the rules of procedure. I suppose the same would apply in the case of the Senate.
P.S. I see your link is voicing an old Democrat complaint on the subject. What are the chances that they won't have changed their minds?
