I have a kubernetes cluster running on baremetal ubuntu server 16.04 with glusterfs and heketi. Heketi will automatically add volume groups and add those to fstab. Due to $reasons, that volume group might not exist on boot.

If the initramfs encounters a non-existant volume group in the fstab, it will cease to boot and throw the server into grub emergency mode - which really sucks for servers sitting in some data center somewhere in the world.

Is it possible to let the kernel try to continue booting despite a wrong entry in fstab?
