How did you change that configuration, simply by editing .config, or by
going through the "make config" routine?
Editing .config doesn't adapt the files in build/, so it should always
be completed with a "make oldconfig" (and then look if it took your
values or overwrote it with something else due to dependencies)
To be extra careful, always run "make clean" after changing the
configuration to force a full build.

The device numbering might be weird at times. It's reasonably stable
once you found the right device name, but it can differ from what you
see elsewhere, so try hdb, hdc, and hdd, too.
