For quick testing, try this:
("/dev/sdf" can be other block device.
 "testA" and "testB" can be other dm names which aren't used in
 your machine.)

# echo "0 10 linear /dev/sdf 0" | dmsetup create testA
# echo "0 10 linear /dev/sdf 10" | dmsetup create testB
(at this point, /dev/sdf has multiple holders)
# echo "0 20 linear /dev/sdf 10" | dmsetup load testB
(at this point, /dev/mapper/testB has 2 claims on /dev/sdf)
# dmsetup resume testB
(/dev/mapper/testB has 1 claim on /dev/sdf)
# dmsetup remove testA
# dmsetup remove testB


Thanks,
