plymouth displays space as \x20
Last modified: 2018-02-14 18:05:35 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install RHEL7 with LUKS encryption on the disk
2. boot with plymouth GUI
prompt displays space in the label as \x20: "Linux\x20LVM"
prompt displays space as a space: "Linux LVM"
plymouth doesn't pick the message. i believe that comes from dracut still, reassigning.

in rhel-7, it's systemd
We did not make it to 7.3, let's postpone to 7.4
