Subject[PATCH] nvme: create 'paths' entries for hidden controllers
Date
When using initramfs-tools with only the necessary dependencies to mount
the root filesystem, it will fail to include nvme drivers for a root on a
multipath nvme. That happens because the slaves relationship is not
present.

As discussed in [1], using slaves will break lsblk, because the slaves are
hidden from userspace, that is, they have no real block device, just an
entry under sysfs.

Introducing the paths subdir and using that on initramfs-tools makes it
possible to now boot a system with nvme multipath as root.
