RHEL 4.6 clone, covering tree-based and dependency fields in dm

From User-Agent: XML-RPC
dm devices can be stacked on other dm devices.
So some of dm devices are valid for mount, fsck, etc.,
while the others are not valid for such use.
Using libdevmapper, it's possible to obtain information about
dependencies between dm devices.
It can be extended to provide user-space tools to obtain
device listing valid for their use.
