Hannes, any update here?

We should really do something with the inconsistent naming of DM devices in
11.2. The patch I propose for kpartx is one of the ways.

If I'm not mistaken, the core problem now is that parted does not assign UUID
to newly created linear mappings (like kpartx does), but udev rules rely on
these UUID's. So another way would be to mimic kpartx behavior in parted -
something I would rather avoid (duplication of naming logic on two places that
need to be kept in sync looks like a maintenance nightmare to me).

Please, let me know if there is anything I could help you with. Thanks.
