Description of problem:
Micro CF is a ROM/CF reader combo device.
When a Compact Flash card is in the reader, it can be accessed using /dev/sda1. The internal flash ROM of the device using FC3. A previous kernel (not sure which - FC1 I believe) was able to access the internal flash as /dev/sda and the CF as /dev/sda1, using them concurrently.
Trying to use the device without a CF card in, dmesg says:
