Am I a kernel hacker or what?

Subject: 	+ nfsroot-do-not-silently-stop-parsing-on-an-unknown-option.patch added to -mm tree
Date: 	Tue, 29 Nov 2005 13:39:07 -0800  (22:39 CET)

The patch titled
     nfsroot: do not silently stop parsing on an unknown option
has been added to the -mm tree.  Its filename is
     nfsroot-do-not-silently-stop-parsing-on-an-unknown-option.patch

From: "Jorn Dreyer"
It would be helpful if the kernel did not silently stop parsing
nfs options, but instead warned about any he does not recognize. The
attached patch adds one printk to do just that.

It took me a couple of hours to find my configuration mistake.
