Upgrading with PATA Hard Disks
========
If you are using PATA (parallel or "original" style ATA) hard disks and
you attempt to do a manual yum upgrade to this release, you may be unable
to boot your system when finished. To avoid this problem, use the
installer program (Anaconda) to upgrade your system instead of using yum.
"*Manual* yum upgrade" implies that I would prefer some *manual* (not
Anaconda) way to fix this issue...

In other words, what I should do after the "yum upgrade" and before the
reboot?
you would need to setup modprobe.conf before you do your yum update make sure it has the correct entry for the module for your pata controller.


Heuh? Isn't this about libata making /dev/hdx /dev/sdy, and thus that you need to make sure that you're filesystems are mounted by label, and then after reboot and you know which sdy is your old hdx, fixup /etc/fstab for swap

Nope, this is about the PATA drivers being built as modules now.
