SubjectRe: 2.5.6-pre3 Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:02

Bloody hell... 14 is EFAULT. And that - from sys_mount() called by
task that has KERNEL_DS as addr_limit. What options do you pass to kernel
and what filesystems are compiled in? Actually, adding printk("%s\n", p);
in the same place might give some hints...

Basically, sys_mount() is called in conditions when -EFAULT should not
be generated at all - it is handled on a pretty low level and AFAICS
that area hadn't been changed between -pre2 and -pre3. Weird...
