kernel-2.6.3-1.97 x root on LVM (with solution)



After upgrading to kernel-2.6.3-1.97, it seems that device mapper
devices in the read-only root filesystem no longer worked: after the
kernel upgrade, fsck failed because the logical volume device name (a
link to the device-mapper device) no longer referenced the right
device.  I had to mount -o remount,rw /, then remove all the
LVM2-created device names in /dev/mapper, and then run lvm vgmknodes.
Everything worked fine from then on.
