Root lvm lv mounted with wrong name

Bug Description

In 15.04 and before, my root showed up in mound/findmnt/etc as /dev/vg/root, but now it shows up as /dev/dm-11. This appears to be due to the following new code in scripts/local:

ROOT=$(resolve_device "$ROOT")

This resolves the symbolic link /dev/vg/lv to /dev/dm-xx and mounts that instead. It should not be doing this.
