No, rdac is also a valid valid value for path_checker.

You must keep the distribution udev rules. And report bugs to them. Nor
multipath or multipathd care about partitions. Those create multipath
device maps and upon creation udev is responsible for calling kpartx.

Check the multipath-tools 'make install' output to see what it may
unduly install as udev rules.
