I suspect this problem is one best solved by using an event based
system for the early boot, to avoid trying to come up with a fixed
sequence to enable block devices and disks. Any fixed sequence is
going to fail for some setup, and the current alternative is for the
maintainers to decide on some supported setup and create a working
sequence for that setup, and leave it to the local sysadmin to cope
with alternative setups on her own.
