Hmm, that PR might not be your problem. Do you see the USB stick probe and appear after the kernel has tried to mount it, like in that PR, or do you see the USB stick probe before mountroot is attempted, but it still fails? Either way, you could try the attached hack. Be aware that this really is not the correct fix, but might at least be enough to get you going until the correct fix is in place. No guarantees, warranty etc. Gavin
