today's (Apr 13th) CURRENT can't find the root fs anymore

This happened while updating from Apr. 10th to Apr 13th,
just after 'make installkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC' and

Here todays messages:

Old -current kernel as of Apr 10th works okay though
and can mount all filesystems without problems. I used
the live CD in fixit mode to rename /boot/kernel.old in
/boot/kernel and reboot for now.

When would it be safe to cvsup again? ;-)
