Change the "find_multipaths" option from yes/no to multi-value. This
option now covers the effects of "find_multipaths" as it used to be,
plus the -i option to multipath (ignore_wwids) and the -n option to
multipathd (ignore_new_devs), excluding such combinations of the former
options that are dangerous or inconsistent.

The possible values for "find_multipaths" are now:

 - strict: strictly stick to the WWIDs file; never add new maps automatically
   (new default; upstream behaviour with with find_multipaths "yes" and
   commit 64e27ec "multipathd: imply -n if find_multipaths is set")
 - off|no: multipath like "strict", multipathd like "greedy" (previous
   upstream default)
 - on|yes: set up multipath if >1 paths are seen (current Red Hat/Ubuntu
   behavior with find_multipaths "yes")
 - greedy: set up multipath for all non-blacklisted devices (current SUSE
   default)
 - smart: Like "yes", but try to avoid inconsistencies between udev processing
   and multipathd processing by waiting for path siblings to
   appear (fully implemented in follow-up patches)

The default has been changed to "strict", because "no" may cause inconsistent
behavior between "multipath -u" and multipathd. This is deliberately a
conservative choice.

The patch also updates the related man pages.
