This patch works for me (it is more general that the proposed solution-

echo "patch rhel6"
mp=$(grep -w "/" /etc/fstab | sed -e 's/ .*//')
if echo "$mp" | grep "^UUID="
    uuid=$(echo "$mp" |sed 's/UUID=//')
    rootdisk=$(blkid -U $uuid)
    ln -vs $rootdisk /dev/root

kind regards

If you had local disks attached direct to VMs, and had LABEL=/ all over the place, for instance.
