What does put it there? The kpartx package hasn't got an initramfs hook
for that. I created one for copying the rules file and kpartx_id
(btw. doesn't that miss a full path specification in the rules file?),
but it still isn't enough. I guess the kernel name is dm-0 in my case,
but there's no /dev/dm-0 node, so
RUN+="/sbin/kpartx -a -p -part /dev/$kernel"
can't really work...
(initramfs) ls -l /dev/mapper/nfs

ls: /dev/dm-*: No such file or directory
(initramfs) ls /sys/block
dm-0 sda sdb sdc sdd sde
