[dm-devel] [PATCH] multipath: update discovery for sysfs layout changes

Hi Christophe,

this patch updates the discovery to work when SYSFS_DEPRECATED is
not set. The change here is that the parent of a block device is
'block', and the 'real' parent is the parent of that. Easy and
non-intrusive change.

Please apply.

    Update discovery to work with new sysfs layout
    With the new sysfs layout the parent device of a block device
    it 'block', and only the parent of this is the 'real' parent.
