Thanks for doing this, looks good in general.

Just a few small nits:
 - rename device_nonrot to device_is_nonrot
 - rename dm_table_all_nonrot to dm_table_is_nonrot
 - add missing whitespace in dm_table_set_restrictions
 - move ti declaration outside of dm_table_is_nonrot's while loop
 - dm doesn't use 'true' or 'false' bool returns even though we have
   functions that return bool -- odd but best to keep consistent for now

I'll respond with v2 that folds these changes in and my Signed-off-by
