Duh! I should have realized this earlier. The problem is devfs,
which both benh and I have enabled by default, and apparently Jonas
does as well.
You have three choices. Add 'devfs=nomount' to the append= options
for these kernels, or rebuild without devfs support, or do 'apt-get
install devfsd' (assuming you're running testing/sid).
