Re: Kernel-2.6.25-0.40.rc1.git2.fc9.i686 doesn't boot in rawhide

This has nothing to do with LVM tools specifically, AFAICT. It has to
do with the kernel used to build your initrd. Newer kernels (2.6.25-git)
rearrange sysfs - things that were directories are now symlinks, etc. This
hurts mkinitrd pretty badly - it can't find the root devices right, to
include the right drivers.

So any initrd built on 2.6.25-x will fail. The attached patch (which
is a utter hack) fixes it for me.
