request module returns "root fs not mounted"

Forgive me if this is a FAQ, but I can't seem to find any
references to it.  I'm trying to set up some physically mapped
Flash on a SuSE 6.3 system.

When my system is starting up, I perform the do_map_cfi()
call before I mount the root filesystem.  request_module(cfi_probe)
returns "Root fs not mounted."

How can I make the kernel wait to mount the flash until after
the root filesystem is mounted?
