Comment 3 for bug 1354730

The failure is due to grub_probe() returning more than one line when using btrfs. In the case of a 4-device raid1 created with:

make.btrfs -m raid1 -d raid1 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1 /dev/sds1

grub_probe() returns and assigns to $rootfs:


which causes calls to mapdevfs to fail since it receives 4 arguments with error code 1 and message "Wrong number of args: mapdevfs <path>".

The fix is to amend the grub-installer script's grub_probe() function:
