Bug#423109: grub-installer: Does not work with symlinks in fstab

Package: grub-installer
Version: 1.24
Severity: normal

When experimenting with scripts to create persistent device names in debian-installer, I found that grub-installer creates an incorrect configuration if symlinks are used in /target/etc/fstab.

For instance, with a fstab like this:
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-FUJITSU_MHV2100A-NTXYZ-part2 / ext3 defaults 0 0
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-FUJITSU_MHV2100A-NTXYZ-part1 /boot ext3 defaults 0 0

grub-installer will create a menu.lst with filepaths that include the /boot components even though it shouldn't.

It would be nice if symlinks would be supported.
