SubjectRe: [2.5.51] Failure to mount ext3 root when ext2 compiled in

This sounds more like the bug I have opened:

where if CONFIG_DEVFS_FS = Y and CONFIG_DEVFS_MOUNT = Y, you will get:

VFS: Cannot open root device "hda2" or 03:02
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:02

I worked around it by enabling CONFIG_UNIX98_PTYS = Y under the
character devices.

But, a recent update to the bug shows that a patch was posted but nobody

Personally, I think the patch should be merged.
