ouch that should never happen, do you have anything printed above the kernel panic?

0x3a == 58 == lvm1 major device number. So it looks like the initrd is still incorrect.

no, the culprit for 0x3a is lilo, but initrd should purposefully ignore
that.
it should mount the root fs and then do a pivot_root, so the kernel
trying to open a root device is unexpected.
