Subject: udev: use device mapper target name for btrfs device ready
References: bnc#888215

When udev gets a change event for a block device, it calls the builtin
btrfs helper to scan it for a btrfs file system. If the file system was
mounted using a device mapper node, mount(8) will have looked up the
device mapper table and used the /dev/mapper/<name> node for mount.

If something like partprobe runs, and then causes change events to be
handled, the btrfs ready event is handled using /dev/dm-N instead of
the device mapper named node. Btrfs caches the last name passed to
the scanning ioctl and uses that to report the device name for
things like /proc/mounts.

So, after running partprobe we go from:
/dev/mapper/test-test on /mnt type btrfs (rw,relatime,space_cache)
... to ...
/dev/dm-0 on /mnt type btrfs (rw,relatime,space_cache)

This doesn't apply only to LVM device, but multipath as well.

If the device is a DM device, udev will have already cached the table name
from sysfs and we can use that to pass /dev/mapper/<name> to the builtin
so that the correct name is used.
