From the backtrace, it looks a bit like a problem in USB/EHCI, though the PartitionMapWriter may still be doing something wrong.

Nope. The PartitionMapWriter hands in a 512 byte sized partition_table but writes fBlockSize, which in this case happens to be 2048. Though I don't understand why it wouldn't simply write sizeof(partition_table). Why would you want to overwrite the rest of the block? I've therefore taken the liberty to just write the size of the partition_table for now so that it doesn't crash (and only read the size of the partition table so it doesn't corrupt random memory). Fixed in hrev32857.
