[dm-devel] [PATCH 0/2] multipath: Stop extra scans on stacked devices

Whenever there is a DM_DEVICE_RESUME ioctl, a uevent is generated. Right now,
when multipath is reloading existing devices do to paths going or coming,
lvmetad will rescan those devices. This is unnecessary, and can cause a lot
of overhead. Also, multipath devices with no working paths will get scanned.
These patches make multipath set a new flag, DM_SUBSYSTEM_UDEV_FLAG0, when it
is reloading devices due to path changes, and lvmetad can safely ignore it.
They also add a new udev rules file, 11-dm-mpath.rules, to disable scanning
when it would not be useful.

  New udev rules to deal with stacked devices
  Mark reloads with udev flag
