Description Jeff Bastian 2015-09-14 10:28:40 EDT
Description of problem:
The plymouth prompt for the LUKS password displays spaces in the disk label as \x20:

    Please enter passphrase for disk Linux\x20LVM (luks-<UUID>)!

This is from the PARTLABEL on /dev/sda3 on my system as created by anaconda:

~]$ sudo blkid | grep sda3
/dev/sda3: UUID=""<UUID>" TYPE="crypto_LUKS" PARTLABEL="Linux LVM" PARTUUID="<UUID>" 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install RHEL7 with LUKS encryption on the disk
2. boot with plymouth GUI

Actual results:
prompt displays space in the label as \x20: "Linux\x20LVM"

Expected results:
prompt displays space as a space: "Linux LVM"

plymouth doesn't pick the message. i believe that comes from dracut still, reassigning.
