Udev rules are part of the device-mapper installation (part of lvm2 source code),
so check what version you are compiling and if udev is enabled, it should install these rules.

But AFAIK Debian still tries to reinvent the wheel and distributes own modified lvm2/dm udev rules,
TBH I am not sure how it works now there.

(On my Debian I have 55-dm.rules which completes that semaphore operation your example is waiting for.)
