Thank you, Daniel.

I looked at both of these, and, while neither appeared to be exactly
what I was looking for, the second pointed me at a script, lvm2, in
/usr/share/initramfs-tools, that, after some massaging, have got me to
the point where I am now able to reboot this server without manual
attention.  There are some "extra" messages ( warnings, mostly ), but it
does boot.

Thanks again,
