For me, I have
/dev/sda - gpt disk, /dev/sda1 is a EFI partition (FAT32), /dev/sda2,
lvm2, /dev/sda3 is my root
(root is suppose to be in lvm2, but currently broken since I have used systemd)
/dev/sda3 / auto defaults,discard 0 2
UUID=5E12-F7F1 /boot/ auto defaults,discard 0 2
/dev/md0.vg/data /mnt/data auto defaults 0 2
/dev/md0.vg/os.swap none swap pri=1 0 0
worst I ever have, are problems mounting /mnt/data and swap (lvm2).
not sure why. Reboots fix it (or just mounting and continuing the
boot). I guess the only partition I have that matches your usecase is
/boot, and I use a UUID to mount it.
