No. It has nothing to do with the patch.

These days I don't work on storage, i.e. don't have a team that spends
the time on these tools. So I keep the upstream first policy, for now.
Even my patch (kpartx) is very trivial but 've put it on hold until
Christoph accepts it.

If this really doesn't work in the long run, we may re-visit it.
