Something in the last 24hrs in linus bk broke my ability to mount root:

Creating root device
Mounting root filesystem
mount: error 6 mounting ext3
mount: error 2 mounting none
Switching to new root
Switchroot: mount failed 22
umount /initrd/dev failed: 2

If I back off a day everything works again.

Root is on Intel ICH5 SATA drive.

dmesg output?

Can you verify that -bk4 works, and -bk5 breaks?

bk4 works. I don't have a serial port hooked up so there is no way to
get dmesg, but I don't see anything obvious on the screen scrolling

I'll check bk5 next.

It would be much more convenient if the bkN releases were tagged in Linus bk.

Well, there are no changes in libata from bk4 to present. The only thing I see in the -bk4-bk5 increment diff that's immediately noticeable is the barrier stuff.
