SubjectSystem not booting since dm changes? (was Linux 4.20-rc1)

Hi Mike,

Replying here because I can't find the device-mapper pull or the patch
in question on LKML. I guess I should be subscribed to dm-devel.

We have a box that doesn't boot any more, bisect points at one of:

cef6f55a9fb4 Mike Snitzer dm table: require that request-based DM be layered on blk-mq devices
953923c09fe8 Mike Snitzer dm: rename DM_TYPE_MQ_REQUEST_BASED to DM_TYPE_REQUEST_BASED
6a23e05c2fe3 Jens Axboe dm: remove legacy request-based IO path


It's a Power8 system running Rawhide, it does have multipath, but I'm
told it was setup by the Fedora installer, ie. nothing fancy.

The symptom is the system can't find its root filesystem and drops into
the initramfs shell. The dmesg includes a bunch of errors like below:

[ 43.263460] localhost multipathd[1344]: sdb: fail to get serial
[ 43.268762] localhost multipathd[1344]: mpatha: failed in domap for addition of new path sdb
[ 43.268762] localhost multipathd[1344]: uevent trigger error

There's more info here if you want it:

Any ideas what's going wrong here?

cheers
