Update of bug #46826 (project grub):

Follow-up Comment #8:

It is really kernel bug that needs to be fixed in kernel. In your specific
case you could

- manually create /dev/cciss!c0d0p3 link as part of startup

and then one of

- use initrd and UUID
- explicitly set root= option in GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. grub-mkconfig
will prepend autogenerated root=, but the last one wins
- modify /etc/grub.d/10_linux to do what you think is the right one

But you are bound to have problems with any program that assumes device in
/proc/mounts is correct; so this should really be fixed in the right place.

Closing it; sorry.
