instead of echo "$LINE" | grep "^LABEL=" | cut -d= -f2 | sed -e 's/"//g' | sed -e 's/ /\\b/g' etc

Replacing 'blkid' with 'lsblk' is a backward incompatible change
because at least on SLES10 there is only 'blkid' but no 'lsblk'
so that this pull request belongs to

@ProBackup-nl Good point, but as @jsmeix said we still have to carry older versions of Linux. For this reason we are declining this PR. However, when we decide to cut-over to v3.0 we might get rid of the older releases of Linux and then we are free to clean up the code.

The next ReaR major version 3.0 would be really a good opportunity
for a "ReaR major version that does away with all the old stuff", cf.
