.. and the reason that card reader has trouble seems to be that it's
just too damn old, and doesn't understand SD-HC cards. It works fine
with old SD cards.

So the reader is fine (well, apart from being too old), USB-storage is
fine, but the SCSI error handler is broken.

Even with that commit reverted, once the SCSI layer has decided to
off-line the device, you can't get it back, even if you remove the
media and insert a non-HC SD card. You have to unplug and re-plug the
reader. That seems to be a slight misfeature of SCSI error handling,
but compared to oopsing, it's minor.
