Oh, yes, sorry. I thought I'd said. It was 5.3-BETA6 as of October 2nd.

I supped the source tree to BETA7 to clean out the old patches, then
re-applied root_mount.patch - and yes, it still works! Up until now
I'd only ever booted a mirror device with one half, and that was
working fine with 5.3 tree and no additional patches. It seems you
need root_mount.patch to boot with more than one device.
