Well I have things working now - my linuxrc actually creates (mknod)
/dev/sd[a-d] with the correct device numbers. Then the vgscan works and
real root is mounted. This is all working fine. So I'm now not sure why it
wasn't working before, if LVM really does know about the devfs naming
conventions. I did an strace on vgscan and it didn't look at /dev/scsi or
/dev/discs or anything like that.
