I missed this when I submitted the patch for the dmsetup remove
and remove_all subcommands.  This is definitely a problem since
the device-mapper user space utilities like multipath use the
dm device name to identify a particular mapped device.
I think the fix is for dm_hash_rename to be calling dm_table_event.
I don't have a working host now so I can't include a tested patch.
I will later this week.

Do you want to change multipathd to recognize that a simple name
change occurred to a map for which it already knows about or simply
have it do an implicit remove/add sequence as I suspect it is already
doing in this case?
