Bug Description

The default LVM Layout used by precise installer creates an ext2 /boot Partition. When using the linux-virtual kernel, the system is unable to mount /boot from fstab since there's no ext2 support.

Seems that the module is not included in the linux-virtual package. Previously ext2 was builtin so we would not notice the lack of the module. Will fix this up.
