Not sure.  I agree that servicing different maps in parallel is
a good thing to do ... but what keeps multiple invocations of
multipath from running concurrently on the same multipath mapped
device?  I think nothing does and in this case, I think there is
nothing that guarantees a time ordering of path related actions.
Not clear if this is a problem though.
