The basic logic behind the table manipulation is to remove one device at a time and then add it back in allowing dm to see the new size of device. When all devices have been removed and reinserted the size of the table can finally be updated.  I haven't tried this with your configuration so if I get it wrong someone please correct me. 

Starting Table:
0 41943040 multipath 0 1 emc 2 1 round-robin 0 2 1 8:16 100 8:160 100 round-robin 0 2 1 8:64 100 8:112 100
Remove sdb:
0 41943040 multipath 0 1 emc 2 1 round-robin 0 1 1 8:160 100 round-robin 0 2 1 8:64 100 8:112 100
Remove sdk reinsert sdb:
0 41943040 multipath 0 1 emc 2 1 round-robin 0 1 1 8:16 100 round-robin 0 2 1 8:64 100 8:112 100
Remove sde reinsert sdk:
0 41943040 multipath 0 1 emc 2 1 round-robin 0 2 1 8:16 100 8:160 100 round-robin 0 1 1 8:112 100
Remove sdh reinsert sde:
0 41943040 multipath 0 1 emc 2 1 round-robin 0 2 1 8:16 100 8:160 100 round-robin 0 1 1 8:64 100
Reinsert sdh and set the new table size:
If you don't know your new size you can grab it from one of the devices with blockdev: /sbin/blockdev --getsize /dev/sdb
0 <newsize> multipath 0 1 emc 2 1 round-robin 0 2 1 8:16 100 8:160 100 round-robin 0 2 1 8:64 100 8:112 100

For each table you will need to complete a suspend, load, resume sequence.
