The included patch fixes multi-device booting (at least the relevant parts for GRUB; the initramfs still needs to understand root=UUID=foo). It does not make GRUB capable of having /boot on bcachefs, but it fixes so that it understands the /dev/foo:/dev/bar syntax when parsing fstab, and adds support for reading bcachefs UUIDs.

Currently bcachefs works great as 6.7.0 as a single device / system and a vfat /boot for GRUB to load and be able to boot into the system but when you add multi device to the system things go bad.

Running grub-mkconfig - o /boot/grub/grub.cfg gives the error:

/usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: failed to get canonical path of /dev/vda3:/dev/vdb1.`

GRUB versions tested:

latest git as of 2024-01-11

I have tried with both compression on and off just rule it out

Most likely depends on https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?55801
