Wouldn't it be adequate to solve this issue in the queue_if_no_path
limiting framework that should be worked on (time-based, queue depth-based,
both, ...?)

After all, the admin should "multipath -f $sssu_wants_to_kill_me") before,
shouldn't it ? Think of mounted FS, for example ... the admin *has* to
do something on the system anyway.

Does this work for you ?
