[RESEND PATCH 2/3] dm mpath: add 'default_hw_handler' feature

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


When specifying the feature 'default_hw_handler' multipath will use
the currently attached hardware handler instead of trying to attach the
one specified during table load.  If no hardware handler is attached the
specified hardware handler will be used.

Leverages scsi_dh_attach's ability to increment the scsi_dh's reference
count if the same scsi_dh name is provided when attaching -- currently
attached scsi_dh name is determined with scsi_dh_attached_handler_name.
