SubjectRe: 2.5.62-mm3 won't mount root

2.5.62-bk-current (as of 2 hours ago) works fine.

I get this right after setting the hostname:

Checking root filesystem
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock.
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

fsck.ext3 : No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/hda1
Failed to check filesystem. Do you want to repair the errors? (Y/N)
(beware, you can lose data)

Even though this is just a test box, I chickened out and reset the box.

/def/hda1 is ext3:

[steven@spc1 steven]$ df -T
Filesystem Type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1 ext3 236M 138M 87M 62% /
/dev/hda9 ext3 20G 13G 6.7G 67% /home
/dev/hda11 jfs 3.9G 2.7G 1.3G 68% /share_jfs
reiserfs 4.0G 254M 3.7G 7% /share_reiser
/dev/hda12 xfs 4.8G 290M 4.5G 6% /share_xfs

/dev/hda6 ext3 2.9G 1.5G 1.3G 54% /usr
/dev/hda7 ext3 479M 66M 389M 15% /var

I tried to build 2.5.62-mm2, but couldn't do to this:

fs/devfs/fs.c: In function `devfs_event':
fs/devfs/fs.c:63: too few arguments to function `call_usermodehelper'
make[2]: *** [fs/devfs/fs.o] Error 1
