Description of problem:
When I install a newew kernel in my RH 7.3 the initrd file created does not
work. This because I use LABEL for my root partition and mkinitrd does not
handle the LABEL properly in fstab.
The system works fine only if I avoid labeling my root partition.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
0. keep configured a good old version of kernel for rebooting later....
BEWARE: if you don't you will not boot again!
1. label your root partition in the fstab file
2. use mkinitrd to produce the new initrd
Actual Results: Kernel panic because the root partition is not found
Expected Results: normal boot
works in 8.0 -- new mkinitrd should be all you need
