Summary0018360: CentOS 8 Stream doesn't boot any longer after update, LVM volumes are not activated at boot (only root and swap volumes are)
DescriptionDisclaimer: I'm not entirely sure what package is responsible for this issue. It could be lvm2 or one of the device-mapper. I think the most likely is lvm2, so this is what I selected, but if it's from another package, please move as appropriate.

After updating one of my CentOS 8 Stream systems on Monday I found out the boot process was failing, hanging waiting for devices for /var/ /tmp/ /opt and others to appear, giving up after a few minutes.

This system is updated every Monday morning, so the change must have happened in the week before, so between the 15th and the 21st of November. I also have the list of the updated packages in the last update run (see below).

I found the following workaround to make the system boot again: remove all references to any* from the kernel command line in grub. This made the system boot again.
Steps To ReproduceInstall CentOS 8 stream with some additional system folder on separate LV volumes (e.g. /var, /opt, /tmp). Apply the update and restart the system, boot should fail.
Additional InformationIt would look like that after the update the system will only activate the volumes listed on the kernel command line, ignoring fstab or lvm config files. I left the LVM config file and the kernel command line as set by the installation, I never changed them. The installation adds the root and swap LVs to the kernel command line, but not all others, even if created during the installation.

If LVM devices are listed in fstab I think those should also be activated by default, regardless or not they were specified in the kernel command line. This was also the previous behavior and this update broke all installation with additional LVM volumes.
