The log shows indeed that your discs are not available. Either because the 
driver is not loaded correctly or because the devices were not created 
correctly. The udev "dump" is the most probably direct cause, but the big 
question is what's behind it.

Kyle already suggested one option, another could be to try the 2.6.16 or 
even 2.6.17 kernel from unstable.

Here are some comments from the initramfs-tools maintainer (maks) and Kyle 
on IRC that may help you, especially the comments about how to reboot 
from the busybox shell:
< maks> kyle had some parisc fixes, i thought they went upstream
< maks> i'll point that to his attention
< fjp> Thx
< maks> fjp also you can reboot from busybox shell
< maks> with sysrq key
< maks> echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigge
< maks> latest klibc has an halt/reboot/poweroff
< kyle> yes, udev is misbehaving sometimes, and we don't quite know why.
