Yes, this is the problem. Change

You are telling the kernel to load the driver for the scsi-controller, that
handles you root-partition at boot-time. Unfortunately, this driver
is on the root-partition ( usually ).
Changing from "m" to "y" links the driver to the kernel at compile
time ( yes, you need to recompile the kernel after that change ).
Thus, the driver is present upon loading the kernel itself and can
therefore happily go on and "talk" to your root-partition.
