kdump test: change device path to UUID
Last modified: 2013-07-03 03:39:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently several customers fail on kdump local test due to `vmcore not found` issue, however the vmcores did saved. After investigation, we have the following:
there are several disks attched, but the disk driver load sequence is different in first kernel and kdump kernel. So /dev/sda1 in first kernel might be /dev/sdb1 in second kernel. Then in kdump kernel, system tries to mount a incorrect partition, which is likely to cause error.
Thus, we need to use UUID or LABEL to avoid such loading sequence mismatch issue.
