	Updated an x86_64 box to and the boot hangs at the very start with
the following error:

Booting 'Arch Linux on Archangel'

root (hd1,5)
  Filesystem type is ext2fs, Partition type 0x83
Kernel /vmlinuz26 root=/dev/mapper/nvidia_baacca_jap5 ro vga=794

Error 24: Attempt to access block outside partition

Press any key to continue...

	This is the same boot problem we have seen with 4 out of 6 of the past new
kernel releases. This is the same issue reported in closed bug 20918. It looks
like there has been a regression. All of the information in bug 20918 is current
for this box. Let me know what else you need and if you want me to reopen the
bug report.


P.S. kernel26-lts- boots just fine as does suse 11.
Downgrading to kernel26- fixes the problem, so the issue is
