Fromt the FAQ you pointed us to: "There are two cases where this does  
not work. The first is when JFFS2 is used as a root filesystem. For  
now, this requires the mtdblock device to be specified for root= on  
the kernel commandline. The second case is when the mount binary that  
is being used does not play nicely with the above format. The busybox  
version of mount is known to not work without the mtdblock device."

I know you don't have a rootfs on jffs2 but do you use busybox mount?
