Description of problem:
On my laptop and desktop when there is just one disk and no logical 
volumes, the initscripts still starts the dm-mod module. if I do:

# fgrep  "device-mapper" /proc/device
fgrep: /proc/device: No such file or directory

OK. I think the "!" in front of it should be removed. I do not understand
the fgrep man page:

"Exit immediately with zero status if any match is found, even if an error was  detected."

If the error is that the device is not found, then it will exit with 0? confusing.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.update to 8.02-1
2.restart system
3.dm_mod is installed

It's intentional, it's loaded if it's not already loaded; it needs to
be loaded for LVM to work (even just for checking to see if any LVM
volumes are there.)
