fails to handle LABEL= or UUID=

Bug Description

Binary package hint: os-prober

linux-boot-prober fails to handle LABEL= or UUID= because it tries to use /target/bin/mount for that and:

+ /target/bin/mount -L /boot -o ro /var/lib/os-prober/mount/boot -t ext3
/target/bin/mount: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The quick fix is probably to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH. The harder but more correct fix is to add -L and -U support to busybox mount.

  * Try finding a LABEL/UUID-capable /bin/mount in $tmpmnt as well as in
  * Set LD_LIBRARY_PATH appropriately in the event that we have to use a
    foreign mount binary (LP: #145424).
