1st state : ready/faulty, shows the path state as seen by the checkers

2nd state : active/failed, shows the path state as seen by the devmapper

or it runs but doesn't work :/

Either way, it's the daemon responsability the reinstate paths. In
recent snapshots it also fails paths in the devmapper the keep the
checkers view in sync with the kernel view.
