There can be two tables for DM device, active and inactive.

Active (live) table is used for operation, inactive is used
in preparation for table change.

"Inactive" table is activated during device resume (if you need to
change table, suspend device and resume device is needed to switch
inactive table to live state).

I missed that these were two separate slots, and that resume was the
trigger to use the inactive table.  It makes a lot of sense now.  That's
for taking the time to explain it.  I should be all set now.
