Package: lvm2
Version: 2.02.66-3
Severity: important

When booting my system LVM (root file system is a LV) reports udev following error:

The link /dev/VGsystem/LVroot should had been created by udev but it was not found. Falling back to direct link creation.

The LV LVroot will not be mounted under his name in the system, but rootfs with the name.

Normally, the root should be mounted filesystem with its device name (/dev/VGsystem/LVroot).

I have already opened (#597536) a bug to udev, but who was with the following message from udev maintainer closed.
<Quote "Marco d'Itri" md at linux.it>
Blame the lvm maintainer who still has not fixed his package.

Which package is now an error is present?
