The function "prepare_grub_to_access_device" first loads the "abstraction"
module, and then the "partmap" module. In my case, these are lvm and
part_msdos. However part_msdos is needed first in order for lvm to find its

Usually this doesn't matter as part_msdos will already be loaded anyway
(BIOS), but in my case, it isn't. I'm booting in UEFI mode from a GPT drive,
but my LVM volumes are on a second drive with a MSDOS partition map.

As a result, lvm doesn't detect any volumes. After removing and reloading the
lvm module, all lvm volumes are found. Changing the module loading order
manually also fixes the problem for me.
