Default Problem with last kmod update on some computers ?

Hello.

I'm facing a weird problem.

On my laptop, since kmod replaced modules-init-tools, I get (for my last
linux kernel upgrade) :

[2012-01-07 20:47] ==> Building image from preset: 'default'
[2012-01-07 20:47] -> -k /boot/vmlinuz-linux -c /etc/mkinitcpio.conf -g
/boot/
initramfs-linux.img

[2012-01-07 20:47] -> -k /boot/vmlinuz-linux -c /etc/mkinitcpio.conf -g
/boot/initramfs-linux-fallback.img -S autodetect
[2012-01-07 20:47] ==> Starting build: 3.2.0-2-ARCH
[2012-01-07 20:47] -> Parsing hook: [base]

And I have to boot 3 or 4 times to get a kernel which mount my root
partition !

ERROR: Unable to find root device
'UUID=cfbc185c-cab3-48c0-bb97-820134b14bfd'.
You are being dropped to a recovery shell
Type 'exit" to try and continue booting
sh: can't access tty; job control turned off

When I type exit :
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
You are being dropped into an emergency shell
sh: can't access tty; job control turned off

And last exit :
ERROR: Failed to mount the real root device.
Bailing out, you're on your own. Good Luck.
sh: can't access tty; job control turned off

Of course, UUID is good.

Opened bug #27862. not a single problem with my desktop computer. Weird...

And here is the log of linux 3.2-2 upgrade...

>>> Generating initial ramdisk, using mkinitcpio. Please wait...

Something is busted with kmod or what ?
