 That's kind of what I figured.

 Well, looking for someone else to test it would be one possibility.
 I have a machine with an ahc that I've seen lock up after a drive
 failure, so in theory I could test the patch by e.g. sticking some
 fault injection into sd.c. That's going to need round tuits, though.
 I'll mark the PR "stuck" so it shows up on the list of PRs looking for
 external assistance, anyway.
