[PATCH] scsi_dh_rdac: Add dynamic match functionality to rdac handler

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


This patch adds the dynamic match functionality to scsi_dh_rdac driver.
New vendor and product strings are normally not there in the kernel. Whenever
the new product is tested with this driver we see failures during the disco-
very. Without the handler attached, the default scsi mid-level retries would
take effect for certain check-conditions. Default retries(5) are not enough in
some cases(especially with large configuration or huge lun cases).

This patch will send an inquiry if the vendor/product strings are not in the
device list and match with vendor signature.
