okay not so important as belows try.

had a look at the initramfs and looked sane.
as your root dev scsi driver seems to be sym53c8xx,
could you please force it load with initramfs-tools:
echo sym53c8xx >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
update-initramfs -t -c -k 2.6.22-3-alpha-generic
(-t is for takeover you have a backup of the yaird initramfs.)
this smells like a kernel bug with sym53c8xx not properly
loaded due to having some ressources stolen.
the mkinitramfs ouput has not the eventual errors,
so it looks sane. please use
mkinitramfs -o /tmp/foo > /tmp/mkinitramfs.log 2>&1
thanks for the quick feedback.
