I'm trying to upgrade my pc532 from sources compiled late May
to the current version and I'm having trouble getting root mounted
read/write.  Here are the symptoms:

bash# mount -u /
/dev/sd0a on /: Specified device does not match mounted device
bash# df
Filesystem  512-blocks    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
root_device      16062   15390    -132   101%    /
/dev/sd0d       220974  200498    9426    96%    /usr
/dev/sd1e       197342  160902   26572    86%    /mnt
/dev/sd1d        65758    1328   61142     2%    /var

As you can see, other partitions mount just fine, but / fails.
Root is on /dev/sd0a if it makes any difference.  I suspect this
is a stupid oversight on my part, but if someone could point me in
the right direction I'd be grateful.
