Description of problem:
If anything is waiting on a device's table when the device is 
removed, we must first wake it up so it releases its reference.
Otherwise the table's reference count will not drop to zero
and the table will not get removed.
Problem found during dm multipath testing at EMC last week -
Ed Goggin supplied the patch.
