Hi Alan,

I am currently investigating this and I may provide a patch for it soon. This will most probably require patching also grub2 package, because current version doesn't want play nice with devmapper (I have a patch for this too).

Comment 2 Alan Pevec 2011-10-13 07:11:10 UTC
The most excellent, Marek!
If you have any test builds, please send it to me, I'll test it in bug 734351.

Comment 3 Joey Boggs 2011-10-13 15:33:38 UTC
same here for trying any test builds or any progress, we need this working for ovirt-node installations as they rely on /dev/mapper devices
