I have had a system running fine since oss 10.1 (upgraded from there on
to the current nightmare that is 11.1).

Here is the system disk layout:

Two 300 GB SATA hard drives - sda and sdba
sda1 and sdb1 are 130 MG, them mirrored using md raid into /dev/md0.
/dev/md0 has ext3 mounted as /boot.
sda2 and sdb2 are 1 GB, then mirrored using md raid into /dev/md1.
/dev/md1 is swap.
sda3 and sdb3 are 274 GB, then mirrored using md raid into /dev/md2.
/dev/md2 has lvm on it, with / being /dev/system/system.
Grub installed in mbr of sda.

This system has been running great. I upgraded in-place from 11.0 to
11.1, and everything was still fine.
Then I built a custom kernel (as I have done with all other versions -
the only thing I change is set the processor type). During the custom
kernel install phase, make modules_install worked fine, but I noticed
some weird device-mapper "no such file or device" error message during
make install. I did not think much of it (probably a BIG mistake).
Verified new vmlinuz and initrd were in place and /boot/grub/menu.lst
looked kosher. Rebooted the system, and it went to pot.
