Follow-up Comment #5, bug #29697 (project grub):

You're right, it has been fixed in bzr. That was quick! Thanks, Colin

I _think_ my patch inspired the fix in bazaar, but I'm not sure. The fix in
bazaar doesn't take into account how deep into the /dev directory the
(recursive) find_root_device() function is.

Perhaps it doesn't seem important, but I think it is. Symbolic links in
/dev/mapper/ will now be followed. That's good. But symbolic links in
/dev/hello/mapper/ will also be followed. So will symbolic links in

I liked my patch.
