The question is why.

Before I had the same kernel configuration than now, but there is
something it has changed in an stable release.

With rc5-ben0 the ide-scsi option was accepted by the kernel. Now it
says you have to use hdX=scsi option instead.

None of them work, and it means I have to change my kernel

I think that is crap. It means something is wrong along the way.
Something that should not be...
