[2.5.51] Failure to mount ext3 root when ext2 compiled in

Just noticed this (usually ext2 is compiled as a module, but was
testing a patch with CONFIG_MODULES=n). Reverted to plain 2.5.51, and
it's still there:

        VFS: Cannot open root device "301" or 03:01
        Please append a correct "root=" boot option
        Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:01

Now, I have an ext3 root, but when CONFIG_EXT3_FS=y and
CONFIG_EXT2_FS=y, I get this failure. Turning off CONFIG_EXT2_FS
"fixes" it.

Hope this helps,
