I can boot a GENERIC kernel with no problems on my PC.  I have
three disks:
	wd0a is a 150 meg root partition
	wd1a is a 4 gig partition
	wd1b is a 128 meg swap
	sd0a is a 128 meg swap
	sd0b is a 2 gig parition

Booting the GENERIC kernel gives this message:
	root on wd0a dumps on wd0b

If I compile a kernel consisting solely of those devices
detected by GENERIC, with NO OTHER CHANGES, I get the
following panic:

	root on wd0a dumps on wd0b
	init: copying out patch '/sbin/init'
	panic: cnopen: cn_tab->cn_dev == NODEV

and the machine reboots.  How very strange.  The GENERIC
kernel boots happily.  Note that I do not have a wd0b
partition at all.  Kernel config files available on request.
