Go back to your kernel configuration and double check that you have enabled
all the necessary SCSI drivers for your card (not as module but directly in
the kernel). Also, make sure you enabled the filesystem driver. ext2 is
enabled by default usually, but things like xfs, reiserfs, jfs and ohters
may not be.

Though, the VFS error above indicates a device problem, so I'd say there's
a missing SCSI thing somewhere. Perhaps SCSI Disc support ?
