  • Without this modification, rear always think it is still on the same
    system to restore and always avoid migration.
  • /dev/mapper contains link to real /dev/dm-X files managed and
    generated by device mapper.
    We do not have to copy them manually and let them being recreated by
    device mapper during recovery process.

tested on SLES11, SLE12, RH7

I dared to do some minor spelling fixes in your comment like
"rear" -> "ReaR" and "link" -> "links".
