UUIDs are used by default AFAICS when the installer creates the
fstab, and should work just fine. Just looking and I don't have
an example system which uses UUIDs /and/ LVM root, however--this
does not appear to be the default for LVM. While this is an
important issue, the fact that it's not hit by default might be
one reason for lowering the severity.
The patches look reasonable. Though for scripts/local-top/lvm2
you might be able to merge the case into the previous case,
since they look identical.
