I think it much more likely that multipathd will restore a path then an
entirely new table be loaded.

Don't think it needs to be removed. Here is a patch that addresses the
issue for me.

From: Mike Snitzer <snitzer@redhat.com>
Subject: [PATCH] dm mpath: only retry ioctl if queue_if_no_path was configured

commit 35991652b ("dm mpath: allow ioctls to trigger pg init") should
have checked if queue_if_no_path was configured before queueing IO.

Checking for the queue_if_no_path feature, like is done in map_io(),
allows the following table load to work without blocking in the
multipath_ioctl retry loop:

echo "0 1024 multipath 0 0 0 0" | dmsetup create mpath_nodevs

Without this fix the multipath_ioctl will block with the following stack
trace:
