The quick way is to just fix the hardcoded name to match what everything
else uses.

For the more flexible way the /etc/fstab is accessible when the
initramfs is generated. Access it then. That means it still breaks when
the user changes the entry or adds an incompatible entry without
generating a new initaramfs but that can't be helped.
