Waiting for the branch... The work's not finished yet, but this should
at least fix this particular issue.

I would also like to solve the issue in this bug report for the old
code, as my last commits have a larger potential bug surface. I'm now
waiting for a reply from the reporter as I do not have any multipath
enabled systems that I can check these days. None of my previous
multipath systems which I used to develop and test had partitions on
the multipath devices, so this went unnoticed. I really should create
a VM that uses iSCSI devices from another one...

It's not a regression from 1.11 to 1.12, though, but from 1.10, so
it's not like I broke something very recently :-)

If anyone can check the sysfs layout of multipath devices with
partitions, that would be appreciated:
# ls /sys/block/sdX
# ls /sys/block/sdX/sdX1 (if it exists)
