Description of problem:

'handlelvordev' function in 'mkinitrd' is passing to 'findstoragedriver'
"devices" with names like "LABEL=/1".  This, in turn, is causing 'find'
to barf with the following long message:

find: warning: Unix filenames usually don't contain slashes (though pathnames
do).  That means that '-name LABEL=/1' will probably evaluate to false all the
time on this system.  You might find the '-wholename' test more useful, or
perhaps '-samefile'.  Alternatively, if you are using GNU grep, you could use
'find ... -print0 | grep -FzZ LABEL=/1'.

This shows up, in particular, when you are installing a new kernel as
a side effect of %post scripts in that package.
