Comment 37 for bug 604335

Still not fixed on 11.10

nutznboltz@hanuman:~$ lsb_release -sd
Ubuntu oneiric (development branch)
nutznboltz@hanuman:~$ uname -a
Linux hanuman 3.0-0-server #1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 9 16:50:35 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
nutznboltz@hanuman:~$ sudo cat /sys/block/vda/serial
nutznboltz@hanuman:~$

/dev/vda symlinks are also not under /dev/disk/by-id

/sys/block/vda/serial should not be an empty file.
