FreeBSD_6 RELEASE kernel panicking!

It had to happen – the new kernel which I compiled last night panics just before mounting the root partition to start “init”. Cant figure out whats causing it. Cant take a dump, “panic” at the debugger prompt says “no device configured. Why cant it find the swap partition like it should?

partial dmesg:

ATA PseudoRAID loaded
GEOM: new disk ad0
<panic>

Grrr…

/me trying a rebuild now from today's CVSUP.
