Do you have a way to boot a generic kernel as a test? What does ls /dev/sd* look like? How about a USB SD card reader? Reminds me of building a custom kernel and leaving something out by accident. Maybe a dependency of the SD card slot. Weird though.

I've not run into that, but it my understanding that an sd slot is an
entirely different critter from MMC. So you may want to go thru
your .config again with that in mind.
