This renders the argument with "rootdelay=" moot - When the kernel gives
no guarantee on timing ANY rootdelay works just by luck. So coming back
to this issue i consider this still a bug - When a block device comes
available the lvm code needs to scan it in case the rootfs is an lvm.

The whole issue with finding the rootfs in the initrd needs to be
triggered and not waited for base on the statement of yours.
