There's no easy way for xfs to work around the fact that a device
listed in /proc/mounts doesn't exist.

This might be a fallout of the big dm naming mess that happened due
to udev's insistance to be the only authority for device names.

I'd recommend to report a bug to your distribution about the
missing device name.
