[ARMedslack] Initrd fails to mount rootfs

So your issue is your u-boot parameters:


[    0.000000] Kernel command line: console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/sda3
rootdelay=10 rootfstype=ext4

It should be 'rootfs=' not 'rootfstype='.

Also Slackware's initrd uses 'waitforroot=' not 'rootdelay='.

Fix those and the kernel should work fine.
These haven't changed since 13.37 but I suspect 'mount' may be more picky
than previously.
