I am installing a virtual machine with the 3.1.0-grml64 kernel (FAI
3.4.8 + fai-setup-storage 4.0~beta3+experimental7) right now and at
least the virtual (virtio) disks vda, vda1...vda9 in /dev have root:disk
ownership, mode 660.

Some time ago I also installed a physical host with similar setup
without any disk-related problems.
