Could you try increasing udevs debug level (maybe capture via serial
console)? Alternatively could you first check if the scripts called from


turn out the expected results? Maybe ENV{DM_STATE} != ACTIVE? or

	/lib/udev/dmsetup_env <major> <minor> 

Should already give a hint.

Sorry for not checking myself but I don't have an up to date system
nearby where I could test this on.
