Bug#265902: patch (was: lilo-installer/manual_bootdev claims traiditional device names work, but they do not)

Package: lilo-installer
Followup-For: Bug #265902

Patch for this bug attached. It changes nothing for users that use devfs
names, but allows to also use traditional names (lilo-installer will not
check whether such device exists, but will fail later if it does not).
