Hi, I suggest closing this bug.  I'll report it with initramfs-tools, as
I realized it's their bug, not yours.  By the way, the following patch
to initramfs-tools solved the problem completely and means we can forget
about Lilo's notion of the root disk.  The case of an _unencrypted_ root
volume will demand a separate patch, however.
