No init found - kernel-2.6.21-1.3116.fc7

Description of problem:
Kernel doesn't boot.
Failed to execute /init
Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel
The grub.conf parameters are ok.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to kernel-2.6.21-1.3116.fc7
3. See the error
Kernel should boot
No one have this problem except me? In this case it must be a failure by
upgrading from FC6 to Rawhide...
I even cannot see any message. My Dell Inspiron 9400 simply freezes with blank
screen booting kernel 2.6.21-1.3116.fc7
Switching back to kernel-2.6.20-1.3104.fc7.i686 from FC6.93 solves the Problem.
I made a "rpm -Uhv --oldpackage kernel-2.6.20-1.3104.fc7.i686.rpm" (with
kernel-headers). After booting the kernel-2.6.20-1.3104, I installed the
kernel-2.6.21-1.3116.fc7, booted in it and the problem is gone.
