Since Saturday, I've been unable to get into multi-user on my AlphaPC164SX
with a new kernel built with source sup'ed each day (including today). 
I revert back to the kernel I built Thursday (Mar 25) and a user-land
built Wednesday (Mar 24).

In single user, if I type "mount<cr>" it hangs with no output, and no
amount of keyboard activity can seem to get any attention save a break
into DB.

I tracked it to the mount call used in mount_critical_filesystems in the
start-up rc stuff.

With my old kernel, I get "root_device /dev/wd0a ...\n" from "mount."
