Kernel Panic after udevstart fails to run on Athlon system

Description of problem:
Booting up on a Fedora Core 3 Test 3 system with newest packages
from devel tree fails on an Athlon system. The version
of udev is 038-2 and I suspect that is the cause of the failure
(maybe it fails to make all the device nodes for the IDE hard disks?).
The error message is (only the noteworthy lines)
/sbin/udevstart exited abnormally
No volume groups found
mount: error 6 mounting ext 3
This happens for kernel-2.6.8-1.624 and not for kernel-2.6.8-1.610
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot up using kernel-2.6.8-1.624
Actual Results: Kernel panic, does not boot
Expected Results: Should boot normally
This is regardless of the kernel -- I could reproduce this with
-1.541, -1.610 and -1.624 kernels. I suspect this is rather a dupe of
a recent udev bug (#136058).
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 136058 ***
However, I *cannot* reproduce this with -1.610 or -1.541.
In fact, my uname -a tells me
[root@localhost log]# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.8-1.610 #1 Tue Oct 12 17:32:34 EDT
2004 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
Whereas udev version is the same:
[root@localhost log]# rpm -qa | grep udev
