mkinitrd doesn't detect lvm if fstab uses LABELs -- root on lvm

Description of problem:
When upgrading kernel versions, specifically installing a new kernel rpm, the
mkinitrd doesn't detect the need for LVM if the root partition is specified in
/etc/fstab with LABEL=/ and root is on a logical volume. Change the line in
/etc/fstab to /dev/vg0/root, or whatever, and it works just fine.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. specify root partition in fstab with LABEL=/ (or any label), where the root
partition is on a logical volume
2. install a new kernel, or run mkinitrd
3. try and boot with that initrd image
No capture handy. "switchroot failed" error and kernel panic.
