      Ok, I am not sure what a Linkstation HS exactly is. The stock kernel /
      bootloader configuration has been tested so far on KuroBox HG and HD. Is
      the LS HS hardware identical to kuro HG? Looks like there might be a
      slight difference. Maybe you'll need a special device tree. To clarify
      that, please post your complete dmesg captured with your nc. Would also be
      good to see dmesg from a running kernel on such a system, as well as
      output from lspci -vv, /proc/interrupts.

      Correct, but you haven't got that far - your kernel cannot mount the root
      as specified on the command line, i.e., your /etc/fstab has not been read

      This also hints at some differences in the hardware.
