Hi Ajay, I'll let mkp respond to most of this ;-) but:

Well, this is a bit tricky. If you look at the man page for xfs_admin,
you'll see the label command. Then look at /usr/sbin/xfs_admin, and
you'll see that it's just a script that calls xfs_db. Perhaps the
labeling info should be in the xfs_db man page as well. I caled xfs_db
here instead of xfs_admin just so that we wouldn't have to add xfs_admin
to the install environment.
However, I'm not sure why rescue mode can't find filesystems with LABELs
in fstab, I'm pretty sure this works over here. And as long as the LABELs
have been made correctly, it's then up to "mount" to decipher labels on
devices, I think.
