No idea. This what made me suspect the cause might be the LTSP

It is a dependency of lvm2. I asked 'aptitude why dmsetup' on the
machine in question. :)

Oh, well. My goal for this request was a faster installation. I
assume we share that goal, and do not see the point of arguing further
for making sure update-initramfs is called as few times as possible.
