Bug#439410: please add a dm-multipath-modules udeb

Hi Otavio,
> Hello Guido,

I think a separate partman-multipath makes more sense (note that this
isn't the (deprecated) md-multipath but the device mapper's multipath
target). partman-multipath will have to run the multipath binary to
discover and group the available paths. The user may then select the
WWIDs of the devices he wants to partition and should be able to set a
user friendly name (which will be stored in multipath.conf). After
partitioning we'd have to run kpartx to create the necessary device
mappings for the partitions. Are there any must reads besides the other
partman-* modules in order to get started quickly?

I've attached a patch for kernel-wedge. Next step will be to file bug
reports for the linux-kernel-di-*-2.6 packages so the file gets used in
their modules/ and package-lists?
