OK, Hold the phone Susan, and stamp IDIOT on my forehead. The erason for
not getting any output on the console was that I had configured the kernel
without support for virtual terminals or console on virtual terminals.
Once I configured that correctly, things worked. Duh!

The thing I don't understand is why would not having that configured in
give me the lost journal and an inability to boot and mount the root
partition when I booted back into a "normal" kernel.
