Note that currently both partman-base and partman-lvm already use dmsetup, 
but in both cases only conditionally (effectively only in case 
partman-crypto is loaded as that _does_ depend on dmsetup).

Maybe it would be logical to make partman-lvm depend on dmsetup-udeb, but 
that would still mean that when it is used in auto-shared.sh, the script 
should check if it is available.
