It actually seems to have something to do with Ubuntu, which I'm told uses the 
same kernel .debs.

I supplied Travis with a config that was basically our xen0 defconfig plus FAT 
support.  He found:
* a XenLinux kernel compiled with it could not mount hdb1 (FAT)
* a vanilla Linux kernel compiled with it could not mount hdb1 (FAT)
* an Ubuntu patched kernel compiled with it *could* mount hdb1 (FAT)

In the cases where hdb1 wouldn't mount there was an error along the lines of 
"hdb1 busy or already mounted".

This really is very bizarre, or we've been missing something silly.  I rather 
hoped somebody here might have a clue.
