There are 4 distinct WWIDs in there; I fail to see your problem?

This should work mostly out of the box.

This is the wrong syntax for dmsetup; you need to give a table name.
"dmsetup create whatever" would create the appropriate table.

No wonder, there's no device map for 8:16, it's a SCSI device.

Yes. Try reading the documentation again ;-)
