Bug#614353: multipath-tools-boot: upgrade to squeeze breaks machines with root on iscsi

Hi there,

I switched to the /dev/mapper devices for booting as you suggested. that

interestingly, after the boot has finished, the /dev/disk/by-uuid
symlinks are created correctly. 

Therefore, the only problem is that they are not created during boot.
This is clearly a bug. 

I do not know if this is multipath-tools' fault. It could as well be a
bug in udev. So please reassign the bug, if necessary.

I would be very thankful if we could resolve this issue as quickly as
possible, as I have many machines booting over iscsi, and I would like
to migrate them as soon as possible to squeeze (without switching all
the device paths in the pxe-config and fstab).

If there is any way in which I can help, please let me know.

Best regards,
