bug#27034: mount -L will mount the first partition with the named label

Now that installation had failed, I decided to remove all contents of /mnt/tmp 
to start from 0. 

lsblk recognized:
sda as the usb installer
sdb1 as a previous failed installation with label my-root
sdc1 as the current installation with label my-root

When I restarted to begin installation from fresh, I noticed that 
/mnt/etc/bare-bones.scm was changed from sda to sdc. I remember having changed 
it. But I started doubting. Then I checked the mount and noticed that /mnt was 
in sdb1 instead of in sdc1. So I umounted and mounted with -L again. But it 
would mount sdb1 again. So I umounted and mounted with /dev/sdc1 and no -L. 
That worked.

I think the problems I have had with the installation might be related to that. 
I hope it does not take so many hours to install in this Intel(R) Pentium(R) 
Dual  CPU  E2160  @ 1.80GHz with 3GB RAM so I can report if there is no problem 
or if the problem is still happenning.
