We need to prevent a possible traceback in anaconda with this fix:

    Fall back on regular device name (#604776)
    In deviceNameToDiskByPath() we call udev_device_get_by_path().  If there
    is no by-path symlink for the device, we get None back.  Rather than
    return None, fall back on udev_device_get_name(info).

Comment 3 Alexander Todorov 2010-06-17 16:38:40 UTC
I've tested with 0617.0 tree which has anaconda-13.21.50-7. There was no symlink for vda under /dev/disk/by-path but it didn't trace back. I was able to complete the install using the vda disk and additional iSCSI disk. 

Moving this one to VERIFIED.
