OK, it seems that it is udevstart that has problems. (Normal udev
operation seems fine; when I trigger uevents manually, the device nodes
are created.)

I ran strace on udevstart and found that it skipped
/sys/block/dasd/dasda1 (interestingly, /dev/dasda was created after I
ran udevstart manually; no idea why this didn't happen on boot. Further
manual runs don't create /dev/dasda1, however.) ls doesn't produce
different output on the two kernels.

Here is some excerpt from the strace run with the broken kernel:
