Probably the changes to use libata PATA drivers instead of the old
crusty IDE drivers at a guess.  The most obvious change being
the move from /dev/hd* to /dev/sd*.  If you're using mount-by-label,
that should 'just work' though, so perhaps either the driver is
broken, or it needs a workaround in mkinitrd like the other PATA drivers
to wait for the disk nodes to appear in /dev before we go looking
for volume groups.

Do you know which IDE chipset this uses? (If you know the module
that ended up in the initrd, even better).
