Nope, that's not what I'm saying. My point is that the target name *is* stable
and mkinitrd should be able to map the target name to a device name and map
that device.

> Solution: use a label or uuid for /

Yep - that's one way of doing it, but "mount by target name" is a valid feature
request too IMHO.
