Description of problem:
multipath device does not show as /dev/mapper/mpathN in sfdisk -d
Even /dev/dm-N and /dev/mapper/mapthN are indentical in major:miner way.
But as document say, we suggest user to use /dev/mapper/mpathN instead of /dev/dm-N
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 5.5 with device-mapper-multipath upgrade to 0.4.7-39.el5
Steps to Reproduce:

sfdisk use /dev/dm-N to indicate the multipath device
sfdisk use /dev/mapper/mpathN to indicate the multipath device.
