I've had this very same problem. I had to go into the kernel config and
change comment out this line:
I may have also had to edit /etc/fstab so that it had the proper device
name in it.
Then I could rebuild the kernel and it worked.
For me this had to to with the device names not matching up properly and
after going to the latest version of 7 it would not find the correct
device names for the drive.
