Allow /dev/xvdN devices to be probed for metadata.
Description of problem:
Udev fails to run blkid on some Xen block devices.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 6.0 and 6.1
Steps to Reproduce:
Try and install RHEL6.x from a DVD in the host's physical drive. It boots and starts, but later says it cannot find the repos. This turns out to be because the disk metadata have not been probed during device init -- the environment is missing ID_FS_LABEL, ID_FS_LABEL_ENC and ID_FS_TYPE
We'd like to propose the attached patch be added to udev rules in both the install disk image and also the regular image. This causes the blkid probe to be run on the devices, providing the metadata which the installer then reads.
