[dm-devel] [PATCH 2/2] dm: export a table+mapped device to the ioctl interface



If a mapped device and table is configured without traversing
the dm-ioctl interface (dm-fs-style), then it will not be bound
to a name or uuid.  This means that it will be inaccessible for
userspace management and udev will be unhappy with the lack of
a name or uuid.

The function added in this change performs the required association
to transition to being managed by the ioctl interface.
