Kernel panic on SMP boot

Hardware Environment: Compaq DL580, 4 CPUs
Booting 2.6.12-1.1372_FC3smp generates panic. Console capture in attachment.
Other kernels, including previous smp, are working. Any suggestions?
title Fedora Core (2.6.12-1.1372_FC3smp)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3smp ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
noapic lapic console=tty0 console=ttyS0,9600n8 debug
title Fedora Core (2.6.12-1.1372_FC3)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.35_FC3smp)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.35_FC3smp ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
Steps to reproduce: boot smp

Console serial port log of boot panic
kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 is broken and refuses to boot on two different
platforms, one with SCSI and one with parallel ATA disks. Previous kernel-smp-
2.6.11-1.35_FC3 works fine on both platforms.
The failure appears to be related to the new kernel's inability to find root
partition, specified as either "LABEL=/" or "/dev/hda2". The old kernel does
that without any problems.
