The number is actually related to the partitioning allowed on the device.

 * Devices are only checked for partition tables if their minor number
 * is a multiple of the number corresponding to their type below
 * i.e. this gives the granularity of whole-device minor numbers.
 * Use 1 if the device is not partitionable.

device-mapper devices don't get partitioned by the kernel
so use 1 instead of 254.
