[dm-devel] [PATCH v3] dm mpath: add 'retain_attached_hw_handler' feature



During SCSI device scan all loaded SCSI device handlers will be
consulted for a match (via scsi_dh's provided .match).  If a match is
found that device handler will be attached.  We need a way to have
userspace multipathd's provided 'hw_handler' not override the already
attached hardware handler.

When specifying the feature 'retain_attached_hw_handler' multipath will
use the currently attached hardware handler instead of trying to attach
the one specified during table load.  If no hardware handler is attached
the specified hardware handler will be used.

Leverages scsi_dh_attach's ability to increment the scsi_dh's reference
count if the same scsi_dh name is provided when attaching -- currently
attached scsi_dh name is determined with scsi_dh_attached_handler_name.
