Bug#357224: Kernel panic after udev update
I upgraded to initramfs-tools version 0.56 and made this test:
1. dpkg -i udev_0.087-1_i386.deb
2. reboot (system was bootable)
3. dpkg -i udev_0.087-2_i386.deb
4. reboot (system was bootable)
5. dpkg -i initramfs-tools_0.53c_all.deb
6. reboot (Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on
My problem was that after update from udev_0.087-1_i386.deb to
udev_0.087-2_i386.deb system was in unbootable state. I was able to
solve the problem manually by reinstalling (big gun but works) udev,
linux-image and initramfs-tools.
I think that my problem was solved between initramfs-tools_0.53c_all.deb
Thanks for your time.

that was the reason of your trouble.
I have busybox version 1.01-4.
When the problem occured I has initramfs-tools version 0.53c (today I
upgraded to version 0.55b).
can you confirm that it worked and that your system was bootable
after the upgrade.
also please post an ls -l /boot, so we can see that your initrd.img
really got regenerated.
Note that I use cs_CZ locale.
please send the output ls -lrt /boot

-rw------- 1 root root 23040 2006-03-15 22:52 map
that seems to be the initrd.img generated with initramfs-tools 0.53c
did you catch that before your upgrade?
what is saying:
update-initramfs -u -k 2.6.15-1-k7
