RE: [dm-devel] failover does not work with rdac device handler



Hi Babu,

There is an another issue w.r.t non-listed devices (like you tested).
The issue is that when the device disappears and reappear, the dh_state
file is not created for them. I wanted to send the patch for that also
together with this one. That is the reason for delay.
