If rootfs is on multipath, but platform does not have an /etc/multipath.conf
file which is not urgently needed, they system will not boot, due to:

multipathd is not started and rootfs and swap are not found:
systemctl status multipathd.service
* multipathd.service - Device-Mapper Multipath Device Controller
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/multipathd.service; disabled; vendor 
preset: enabled)
   Active: inactive (dead)
Condition: start condition failed at Thu 2015-05-07 11:49:11 CEST; 7min ago
           ConditionPathExists=/etc/multipath.conf was not met
and exit to dracut shell.
