	This reports a LUN_Z, which is what I expected after I
was explained a LUN_Z is the same as a ghost report.
	I get this in dmesg at multipath(8):

device-mapper: dm-multipath: 66:144: Error trying to initialize PG, failing path
device-mapper: dm-multipath: Failing path 66:144

66:144 is, indeed, /dev/sdap.  Kpartx is again hanging on:
