Default findfs does not find rootfs UUID

Hello,

I moved my root partition to a new SSD and used ext4 as filesystem. Everything
works well, except that I get an error message during boot (which I think was
not there before):

findfs: Unable to resolve ...

http://bokomoko.de/~rd/ext4-rootfs-uuid/IMG_6119.JPG

for my root partition. The system boot without a problem though, and when
booted findfs works out ok:

blackbox:~# findfs UUID="4a4eb948-2d2b-4188-96ae-76a3776ae69c"
/dev/sdb1
blackbox:~#

Should I be concerned about this issue?

Thanks,
Rainer

The problem was that I specified the root filessytem in /etc/fstab as

UUID="4a4eb948-2d2b-4188-96ae-76a3776ae69c" / ext4
noatime,discard,data=ordered,errors=remount-ro 0 1

When I use a device, the problem goes away:

/dev/disk/by-uuid/4a4eb948-2d2b-4188-96ae-76a3776ae69c /
ext4 noatime,discard,data=ordered,errors=remount-ro 0 1


Thanks,
Rainer
