    Thanks, that did the trick. Seems this "no root" stuff
    didn't realize that I want a root after all.

    There is more than one way to specify a root, it seems. I never
    set any numbers for my root, I use the root=/dev/md/0 parameter
    to the kernel. I don't have any initramfs.

    Why don't those who want to keep an initramfs simply
    specify root=/dev/root which don't need extra parsing?
