I'd rather prefer to schedule the activate_path() workqueue item
directly; no need to involve yet another workqueue here.
And we already know which path to activate.

But yeah, it looks as if we need to reschedule activate_path() here.

You are right, this is a different patch.
I'll be splitting it up.

So I've thought, but struct mapped_device is internal to dm.c
And having yet another wrapper just to circumvent the layering
seemed a bit excessive.

But I do whatever deemed necessary by the powers that be ..
