  I don't think udev rules will fix it, since the udev rules
are on the root filesystem that it's not finding.

  I recommend using volume management, so that the root
filesystem ends up on /dev/mapper/vg0-root or something
similar -- this all gets set up in the initramfs, and elegantly avoids device-naming issues.

  Alternatively, you can mount the filesystems by label
or by UUID.

Thanks, Andrew. That got me started in the right direction. I ended up not using LVM as I didn't want that extra layer of complexity creating another point of failure, but I did get it working.
