 Labeling the root filesystem was a workaround when I started getting issues on device namings changes as I began using the SATA drives for NAS storage. In practice what was happening was that uboot thought that root was on sda but once the kernel booted it would detect the SATA drives before that and name the usb memory stick to after the last SATA drive causing a kernel panic as initrd attempts to mount the root filesystem. Labeling the root filesystem was a workaround when I started getting issues on device namings changes as I began using the SATA drives for NAS storage.

-I thus changed the u-boot environment to pass the root device as a label rather then a device path.+I thus changed the u-boot environment to pass the root device as a label rather then a device path. This allows me to boot my GoFlexNet correctly from any usb stick (even trough a usb hub) regardless of the presence of the SATA drives.
