This is way off-topic on debian-security, but:

This suggests your new kernel is failing to find /dev/sda. Does the boot
sequence mention anywhere that it's detected your SCSI interface (host
adapter)? If not, do a "make menuconfig" and check the SCSI configuration
to make sure support for your SCSI hardware is being compiled into the
kernel (NOT as a module, since modules are not available till after the
root fs is mounted).
