I personally think (regardless of the fact, that I wrote the patch
under discussion), using the module parameter is sufficient for these
kind of customers. For me it's an either/or kind of setting (either
native or dm-mpath).

Downstream distributions could still carry a small patch flipping the
default to off if they want to maintain backwards compatibility with
existing dm-mpath setups (which for NVMe I doubt there are many!).

What we really should do is, try to give multipath-tools a 'nvme
list-subsys' like view of nvme native multipathing (and I think Martin
W. has already been looking into this a while ago).
