You're probably using an Apple partitioning scheme.  In order to read 
from Apple partitions, you'll need to have support for that in your 
kernel.  Turn on: CONFIG_PARTITION_ADVANCED and CONFIG_MAC_PARTITION. 
In the future, to make kernel configuration more simple, you should do a 
"make defconfig" before configuration.  This ensures that you have sane 
defaults set.

Good luck!
