   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

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.
