Default problems booting IBM servers with 2.6.32 kernel

Thought I would share this solution/workaround.

I had a kernel dump happening following the kernel update
to 2.6.32 for Debian squeeze on an IBM x345. It looked like
this problem:

https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=26692

I tried removing 'quiet' from the kernel args but it simply changed
where the kernel oops happened. The old 2.6.24 was
still booting fine from Debian 5. Eventually I came across this page:

http://wiki.debian.org/InitramfsDebug

On another old IBM xSeries server some weeks ago I had
found rootdelay helped.

In the case for the x345, I used both of these:

rootdelay=9 scsi_mod.scan=sync

After this 2.6.32 boots and I can continue to apt-get dist-upgrade
as per the Debian upgrade instructions.

I hope this helps someone.
