The first card could have been slightly fried; it came back up after a
reboot, and would kernel panic again within a few days.  Since I had
what I thought was a good second card I never bothered to test the first
one thoroughly.  After the second card ate the array I bailed on the old
cards completely; had the 9650 been easy to obtain I would have, but it
was pretty much EOL by then.

The 9650 that died last month refused to be recognized on cold boot, so I
think it's totally gone.  It's old enough that it's not worth my time
trying to figure out whether it's revivable.
