It seems to me that "apt-cache search device-mapper partition" should
turn up kpartx in the results. It currently doesn't, because
device-mapper isn't in the package description.
maybe you could add "Kpartx uses the device-mapper subsystem." or
something like that?
Thanks for maintaining kpartx in debian,
