2.6.39-rc4 is either _much_ harder to crash, or my script isn't as reliable at
crashing the kernel as I thought (until now I've mostly used the suspend/resume
method with multiple drives attached). I've now done over 200 bind/unbind
cycles of this external ext4 USB key without a crash. But I certainly did crash
it once earlier today.

An observation from earlier that might be relevant here: a couple of weeks ago
one of my drives got itself into a state that made it crash the kernel almost
every time I unplugged it, but after I did an fsck on it it became
significantly less likely to cause the crash. And after my last reboot there
was a lot of fsck'ing going on, probably including the external drive.
