           Summary: Mount by LABEL does not work on whole disks.
           Product: Linux XFS
           Version: 1.1.x
          Platform: IA32
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: XFS kernel code
        AssignedTo: xfs-master@xxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: austin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

If this is a userspace bug, what version of the package are you using:

What kernel are you using: 2.4.19-aa1

Where did the XFS code come from?: Part of the -AA tree.

Description of Problem:
Mounting whole disks, rather than partitions, does not work by LABEL=

How Reproducible:

Easily reproduceable.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Using a whole scsi disk, mkfs.xfs on it, 
2.  Using xfs_admin -L somelabel /dev/sdN (where N is a-z)
3.  Add a LABEL=somelabel entry in /etc/fstab
4.  mount /somemountpoint

This will fail.

Actual Results:
Mount says the label does not exist.

Expected Results:
Should be able to mount whole disks by label.

Additional Information:
cat /proc/partitions sees the whole disks. Disks just don't have any partitions.
