Thank you for detailed answer Christophe.

I'll try to upgrade multipath-tools, but as for second choice it looks
like following configuration should work:

root btv1:~# cat /etc/multipath.conf 
defaults {
	path_checker	rdac
}

blacklist {
	devnode "^sd[a-b]"
}

multipaths {
	multipath {
		wwid			360080e50001baa46000025834d501798
		alias			vod
		path_checker    rdac
	}
}

I even think that rdac definition in inside multipath is redundant but
if I remove it nothing changes. And looking at verbose output it looks
like it reads configfile (at least sda and sdb devices are blacklisted
and it tells that I have rdac defined in configfile).
