Yes, of course, this is a straight GENERIC kernel. I think I got my symptoms
crossed -- the bit about prompting for the root device is what happens when
I try to use the 'N' booting method instead of O-F command line.

Booting -current comes up fine -- remote logins work -- except for the nasty
USB messages and the fact that the console keyboard (a USB device) is dead.
