During the boot process, the kernel will panic just after it initializes

<0>Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!

I have the whole message as a screenshot, which i can send to anyone interested.

Steps to reproduce:
Compile the kernel with Compaq Smart Array 5xxx suport and boot.
Using the same .config file i was able to compile a 2.6.0-test2 which worked
