Dell M805 root filesystem times out during boot

Bug Description

When booting the default 2.6.31-14-generic kernel, this system times out while looking for the root filesystem. Several seconds later the root filesystem (/dev/sda1) becomes available.

Booting with 'rootdelay=60' fixes this problem and allows the system to boot normally.

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ uname -a
Linux ubuntu 2.6.31-14-generic #48-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 16 14:05:01 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux
