Bug#219050: cannot find cdrom after reboot

Package: installation
Severity: important
Tags: d-i

Taken from an install report (on vmware) and the susequent conversation:

I don't see devfsd running, or devfs even mounted in my installed
system. It does seem likely that the rename has something to do with
this though.

I think this problem should only effect systems with scsi disks and an
ide cdrom. If the disk is also ide, then the initrd will load the
necessary ide modules (dunno if it loads ide-cd though).
