My issue was that I was getting I/O errors when other systems were rebooted
(and occasionally other times, reboots consistently would cause a problem),
and those I/O errors would cause the mount to drop.  Somehow I got the idea
that turning off failfast might help and it did.  I have not monitored what
events the SAN was sending the card, all I did was turn on debugging in the
qla2xxx drivers and ask Andrew Vasquez (qlogic developer) about them.
