Those drivers aren't the "stock" Buslogic drivers that come with
the 1.2.13 kernel.
Here, the old drivers on the Buslogic were chewing up the disk -- switching
to the new drivers was like night and day.
Something else to consider: compare the ext2 directory error
handling in 1.2.13 with 1.3.10 or better. Some conditions
that would panic ext2 in 1.2.13 are detected and handled in
1.3.10+. For instance:
EXT2-fs error (device 08:10): ext2_find_entry: directory #3305809
contains a hole at offset 2048
In 1.2.13, I'm pretty sure that error would panic ext2. With
later kernels, you can move the directory to lost+found, and tar
it back into place, with everything mounted and running.
