Package: initscripts
Version: 2.88dsf-13.1+squeeze1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

The root's file system is btrfs, it's on /dev/sda1.
Now I add a raid card whose vd has just one btrfs partition, and I find not only the path changed(from /dev/sda1 to /dev/sdb1), I also cannot boot the system.
When booting, it always fail into busybox, and the vd's partition is mounted as /root!(fstab file has no entry about the vd)
No matter I change the mounting method in fstab(by uuid or path), it just can't work, unless I remove the raid card.
