Summary:  Failure to populate device.map for Compaq/HP Smart Array

Original Submission:  When requesting grub to populate a new device.map via 
--device-map=file (where file doesn't exist) or via grub-install --recheck, 
grub does not make any entries for SmartArray devices, specifically those with 
names such as /dev/cciss/c0d0.  Rather, device.map is populated only with an 
entry for (fd0).

However, the device.map that is generated by anaconda on RH (I've only tested 
this so far with 9.0), is valid and contains and entry for
(hd0)  /dev/cciss/c0d0
using that device.map it IS possible to install grub via the commands
root (hd0,0)
setup (hd0)
however it is NOT possible to set up via grub-install because of a bug (I'll 
enter separately) that prevents it from working with SmartArrays as well.
