On second thought, I'm really not convinced we need this kind of logic.  It
seems a lot like a workaround.

Just leave it with (/dev/foo).  If you remove generation from
grub-install, you can remove the backward compatibility hack while at it.
Then we rely only on UUIDs.

In the future, we can rely on the initial value of $root as well, but this
would require some rework (disk / partition split).
