[dm-devel] Re: [PATCH 7/7] scsi_dh: attach to hardware handler from dm-mpath



What is the purpose of this feature ?

With dh_state functionality, one could associate a handler to a new
device and then if one does "multipath", the hardware handler would be
associated with the multipath device. What are we achieving by this ?

The review comments below are on the assumption that this is a needed
feature.

Shouldn't we provide a detach also ?

This need to be moved to an earlier patch.

This too.

This code seems to do incorrect things (run the case with sdev == NULL
or sdev->scsi_dh_data->scsi_dh != scsi_dh).

This function can be simplified to just call scsi_dh_handler_attach()
after getting scsi_dh and a get_device.

We can avoid calling scsi_dh->attach directly. instead call
scsi_dh_device_handler(), which would do all the necessary checking.
