Re: [dm-devel] Re: [PATCH 0/3] scsi_dh: Add ability to set parameters for scsi device handler



I had taken the patches you sent earlier and tried them on the SLES 11.
There were a couple of collisions but not much.  I am able to set the
parameters in hardware handler with the patches.  This also now allows
multipath to handle path failures correctly where reservations are
involved, aka honor reservations set on trespass command.  I will do
more testing but so far so good.

I made one type cast change in scsi_dh_emc.c to avoid a warning
	char *p = (char *)params;

I will look at your patches to make sure I reconciled the conflicts
correctly.
