The kernel is supposed to be robust against faulty USB devices.  They
should not be able to cause a crash, unless the device or port has an
electrical fault (e.g. short circuit).

Given that Atanas says says the drive could be mounted, I think this is
a kernel bug.  See the section 'required information' at
