If you can mount this disk in single user mode your best bet to be

Even though I don't think it should/would be a problem I can not
speak of a authoritative nature on this subject because I have not
had to test such cases.
Personally, I don't think this practise of labelling partitions with
names like var makes any sense. fstab exists to keep track of what
devices map to which mount points, the point of glabel is to give those
devices unique names that are independent of where and when they
I think people get the idea that if they use labels like var they'll
never need to edit fstab again. The benefit of that is negligible, it's
much easier and less confusing to make minor changes to fstab when you
copy it to a new disk than it is to shuffle labels around.
