Description of problem:
While trying to upgrade RH from 7.2 to 8.0 the installer cannot handle my swap
partitions  /dev/scsi/sdh0-0c0i0l0p6 and /dev/scsi/sdh0-0c0i1l0p6

2.Choose "Upgrade existing installation"

the fstab is of the form /dev/scsi/sdh0-0c0i0l0p6.

Expected Results:  Fstab entries of the form /dev/scsi/sdh0-0c0i0l0p6 should be

this looks like you're using scsidev.  We have never used scsidev in Red Hat
Linux.  We can't translate from the /dev/scsi that was created with scsidev to
the actual device that swap is on.  Once sysfs is done we will move to that to
have static mappings for drives.  Till then, this is not supported.
