    A bit of a weird question, but maybe I do not understand where it is
    coming from. Some context might help.

    The hard drives are likely connected to a harddisk controller of some
    sort and that controller is somehow hooked up in your system. Your
    kernel needs a driver for the controller. It is 'convenient' to have
    that driver built in your kernel for the hard drive containing the root
    file system.
