[dm-devel] [PATCH v3 3/3] dm: lookup devices by path with name_to_dev_t



Replace major:minor parsing with name_to_dev_t.  This
maintains the current functionality (as the code was the same),
but adds support for the hexadecimal dev as well as device lookup
before the root filesystem is available.  The latter is the motivation
for this change.

It still falls back to lookup_bdev() for cases where the inode
on disk provides more information than the name (and the path exceeds
the length handled by name_to_dev_t).
