We've been shipping the mpath_prio_ontap callout program for more than a year 
with our software kit (which is supposed to be installed on top of our 
supported Linux operating systems). So customers who'd have followed our 
setup guides should not be hit by any compatibility issues.

We're looking forward to using "mpath_prio_ontap" as the name because it is 
more generic and serves our additional needs.

For RHEL5/4 series, is it okay to have "mpath_prio_netapp" as a link pointing 
to "mpath_prio_ontap" ?

As for RHEL6 and ahead, we could just remove "mpath_prio_netapp".


Thanks,
Ritesh
