  I'm running a kernel from sources supped today and it boots with
no problem.  I just searched the kernel and don't see any message
about "missing root", so I don't know where that would be coming
from.  I even searched the entire source tree and don't see that
message.  Perhaps you are getting the "no suitable root" message?

  The only problem I had was compiling dev/grf_rt.c.  RETINACONSOLE
wasn't defined, so the variable rtconunit wasn't defined, but it was
referenced later.
