Forcible remove (with some reasonable locking - so i.e. 2 processes are not
playing with same device :) 'dmsetup remove --force' - is replacing
existing device with 'error' target (with built-in noflush)
Anyway - if you see a reproducible problem with forcible removal - it needs to
be reported as this is a real bug then and BZ shall be opened...
