It is (https://launchpad.net/bugs/1032823), but the circular dep is
exactly the same way in Debian, thus why would Debian upgrades not be
be affected? We just don't automatically report them in Debian.

dmsetup is already required, so lowering libdevmapper's depends:
dmsetup to recommends should not have any practical consequences other
than fixing this circular dependency and upgrade bug.

Anyway, if you are not interested in this I'll shut up.
