this does not work out of the box.

As far as I am aware, this information is not stored at the file system
but in the partition table. Therefore, the most natural approach to
obtain this information would be to enhance the 'part_blk' component to
produce a 'Report' that contains the results of the partition-table
parsing. The information of the report could then be routed via
report_rom as a ROM module to your component.

As of now, there is no component for writing or modifying a partition
table (i.e., for writing the volume name) available on Genode.
