Subject[BUG] Ramdisk is broken with 2.4.19-pre6/8

I've build a 2 disk set following the
instructions. This works well with < 2.4.19-pre6 kernels but 2.4.19-pre6 just
doesn't read the 2nd floppy disk (the ramdisk).

I noticed that 2.4.19-pre6 try to read from floppy before prompting for the
ramdisk and <2.4.19-pre6 never did that.

Once i press enter with the 2.4.19-pre6, the kernel seems to do nothing. No
kernel panic, no oops. It just does nothing. The floppy leds is switched on
3s or 5s and then is switched off.

Alt+SysRq+T gives me 5 usual tasks in Sleeping mode :
and one active task called swapper (never heard about that one).
This last task is still in R state.

This bug is still present in 2.4.19-pre8 (tested, same behaviour).


PS : Can you cc me the answers as i not a lkml subscriber. Thx
