    Driver core: convert block from raw kobjects to core devices

    This moves the block devices to /sys/class/block. It will create a
    flat list of all block devices, with the disks and partitions in one
    directory. For compatibility /sys/block is created and contains symlinks
    to the disks.

    Apparently, compatibility is in the eye of the beholder - in this
    case, LVM.

    does not help. The problem persists.

    does indeed fix the problem and allows me to boot successfully.
    Pity, I was so happy getting rid of that a couple of releases ago.

    I'll have to investigate how to do that without breaking anything.
