I didn't last time I tried, 2 years ago.
Anyway this method is not the way to go.

You have only two choices here for real multipath handling :
1) You need commercial support, and you don't mind tainting your kernel,
then SecurePath is the way to go
2) You are satisfied with community support, then lk2.6 & device-mapper
multipath target & multipath-tools are the way to go. Note that you also
inherit the risks of being an early adopter.

Other solutions just don't fit the availability and care-free criteria.
