2.6.4 can't mount root xfs

The system here is a dell optiplex gx110 workstation, PIII cpu. My boot
drive is SCSI hanging off of an adaptec aha-2940uw. lspci output is pasted
in below. Kernel 2.6.3 is working great for me, so I guess I'll be sticking
with it. I also have a 2.4.21 kernel that boots cleanly on this system. I
have a separate /boot partition which is an ext2. All other partitions (/,
/usr, /home) are xfs.

My 2.6.4 kernel source is from the cvs tree at oss.sgi.com. I pulled the
update on March 15th, 2004 at around 11 PM central time.
config used is at http://shoshana.dnsalias.org/config-2.6.4.txt

When I try to boot the resulting kernel, it panics with an unable to mount
root fs error:

VFS: cannot open root device "sda5" or sda5
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount root fs on sda5
