Bug#492790: debian-installer: lvm+raid+cryptfs blues

I've discovered that this is because the generated fstab has UUID
entries in, which upsets the cryptroot initramfs hook.  Obviously this
codepath has never been tested.

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=522041 is the relevant
bug and has a patch.  Personally I edited fstab to use device names and
re-ran update-initramfs.
