Something in here broke LVM support - an initrd that has worked fine for
quite some time suddenly couldn't mount /dev/VolGroup00/root so we get the
infamous "Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!" when we
fall off the end of the initrd and haven't pivoted to the real disk.

It finds the disk OK:

[ 81.202310] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] 156301488 512-byte hardware sectors (80026 MB)
[ 81.214466] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Write Protect is off
[ 81.226467] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Mode Sense: 00 3a 00 00
[ 81.238436] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Write cache: enabled, read cache: enabled, doesn't support DPO or FUA
[ 81.250780] sda: sda1 sda2
[ 75.396119] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Attached SCSI disk

but then the lvm command says it can't find the volume group VolGroup00 (which
is actually sda2 - sda1 is a small /boot partition, rest of disk is LVM).

A quick look at the rc4-mm1 announcement doesn't have any obviously tempting
patch names to start at, so it looks like it's time to play mm-bisect. It may
take me a day or two, as I have some time management issues this week...
