journalctl -b output of a failed boot attempt

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:10.0.12) Gecko/20100101

I've updated one of my openSuSE 12.2 machines to the new 12.3 release. We've
also switched from sysvinit-init to systemd.

After a reboot, the machine fails to boot. It displays a welcome message for
emergency mode and asks me for the root users password.

In journalctl -b, I can see that it failed to mount /dev/dm-1 to /wwwcache.

I've enabled multipathd with systemctl enable. But according to journalctl, it
doesn't get started.

If I uncomment the corresponding line in /etc/fstab, the system boots fine and
multipathd.service gets executed.

I'll attach a journalctl output, when I'm in the rescue shell again.

If you need further information, please let me know.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a device-mapper (FC multipathed) disk to /etc/fstab
2. Reboot
Actual Results:
Boot fails at mounting the device-mapper (FC multipathed) disk

Expected Results:
Mount the disk and continue booting
