    Subject[BUG] 2.6.23-rc3 can't see sd partitions on Alpha
    Completely reproducible... 2.6.23-rc3 kernel boots, and normal messages
    are seen on console as far as disks found and partitions on each. However,
    once /dev is populated and the boottime scripts attempt to check filesystem
    status, no partitions on either of the two disks attached to the SCSI
    controller are seen. Dropping into a single-user root shell confirms
    the sudden "blindness": fdisk can't open /dev/sda.

    When I reboot on 2.6.24-rc2, everything works normally.

    System environment is Debian Etch. Both 2.6.24-rc2 and -rc3 were built
    from the respective unaltered source trees, using the same
    kernel configuration modulo saying "no" to CONFIG_SENSORS_I5K_AMB and
    CONFIG_PID_NS in -rc3. No problems with -rc3 on a x86 box.
