  Root lvm lv mounted with wrong name

Status in initramfs-tools package in Ubuntu:
Status in initramfs-tools package in Debian:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  In 15.04 and before, my root showed up in mound/findmnt/etc as
  /dev/vg/root, but now it shows up as /dev/dm-11.  This appears to be
  due to the following new code in scripts/local:

  ROOT=$(resolve_device "$ROOT")

  This resolves the symbolic link /dev/vg/lv to /dev/dm-xx and mounts
  that instead.  It should not be doing this.
