kernel 2.6.0-test11 custom compile weirdness

Something I've noticed and not sure why. When compiling a custom kernel 
the entire process works flawlessly except that after make install, all 
the driver permissions aren't properly set. I had to do chmod 744 with 
-R to get the permissions right.

Also I noticed that on arjanv's test11 that I immediately received a 
kernel panic on (0,0) for kernel-2.6.0-0.test11.1.102.i686.

Currently have a very stable NON custom kernel-2.6.0-0.test11.1.100.i686 
in operation grabbed from arjanv's 
http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/2.5/RPMS.kernel/ site.

I'm thinking that somehow my sata drive is at issue. Issuing an lspci I 
get the following address for the Promise RAID controller:
0000:02:04.0 RAID bus controller: Promise Technology, Inc. PDC20376 (rev 
02)

Any ideas why custom kernel building creates a non functioning, kernel 
panick for this kernel? I have built many custom kernels
and not sure what is causing this problem.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
