bdflush isn't needed on 2.6 at all.  The message you get just after that
error in the logs is

		printk(KERN_INFO "Fix your initscripts?\n");

which gives you a clue how to fix it: it's a matter of getting the init
scripts not to try starting the bdflush daemon in the first place.

But bdflush is a noop on 2.6, it's harmless to leave things as they are
for now in case you want to dual-boot between 2.4 and 2.6.
