 (responding to self)

 Is lilo supposed to call something like "dmsetup info" on the
 major/minor of dm-1 to translate this into a device mapper
 "device_name"?  E.g.:
 bee:~# file /dev/dm-1
 /dev/dm-1: block special (253/1)
 bee:~# dmsetup info -c --noheadings -j 253 -m 1
bee--sata-refuge:253:1:L--w:1:1:0:LVM-beM0G1UiiCSaWGi1RkcyX3EhGET9D7GbyLPU0wXiCs
OswbyC2LoECortBYa3prWw
 bee:~# dmsetup table bee--sata-refuge
 0 131072 linear 8:2 117440896

 Or is the device-mapper code supposed to accept device names from /dev
 as parameters?
