Description of problem:

After RHN upgrade from kernel-smp-2.6.9-5.EL to kernel-smp-2.6.9-42.0.2.EL, 
system with root partition under LVM2 does not boot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (2.6.9-42.0.2.ELsmp)

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. system was initially partitioned/formatted/installed with root partition 
under LVM2 using lvm2-2.00.31-1.0.RHEL4 and kernel-smp-2.6.9-5.EL
2. via RHN, it was upgraded (without any problems) to lvm2-2.02.06-6.0.RHEL4 
and kernel-smp-2.6.9-42.0.2.EL
3. system reboot with new kernel results in kernel panic
Actual results:

System boot normally with old kernel; with new kernel boot aborts with 'kernel 

   Booting 'Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (2.6.9-42.0.0.ELsmp)'

root (hd0,0)
 Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-42.0.0.ELsmp ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
   [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1400, size=0x15f4d2]
initrd /initrd-2.6.9.-42.0.2.ELsmp.img
   [Linux-initrd @ 0x32edc000, 0x113561 bytes]

Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.

Red Hat nash version starting
  Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...

mount: error 6 mounting ext3
mount: error 2 mounting none
switchroot: mount failed: 22
umount /initrd/dev failed: 2
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempting to kill init!

Expected results:
System boots normally with new kernel.
