Display all possible partitions when the root filesystem failed to mount
Display all possible partitions when the root filesystem is not mounted. This helps to track spell'o's and missing drivers. Updated to work with newer kernels. Example output: VFS: Cannot open root device "foobar" or unknown-block(0,0) Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions: 0800 8388608 sda driver: sd 0801 192748 sda1 0802 8193150 sda2 0810 4194304 sdb driver: sd Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0) [akpm@linux-foundation.org: cleanups, fix printk warnings] Signed-off-by: Jan Engelhardt <jengelh@gmx.de> Cc: Dave Gilbert <linux@treblig.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
