RE: [dm-devel] [ANNOUNCE] multipath-tools-0.4.1

The devinfo.c file in the multipath-tools-0.4.1 appears to have a typo
in the code to get the node_name attr in the fc_transport sysfs entry.
Path below should fix it. BTW why does a failure to get a node_name
attribute, result in failure of multipath discovery (because devinfo
returns failure)even if the "group_by_node_name" policy is not used ?
Can't we just NULL out the tgt_node_name string in the sysfs_devinfo
routine and fail the group_by_node_name routine if that policy was
chosen ? That is what happened in my case. Multipath discovery failed
due to above reason even though node_name grouping was not specified.

here goes multipath-tools-0.4.1

Another round of bugfixes.
People are starting to report sane behaviour.

If someone at IBM (or knowledgeable enough) is listening, we need a
method to check a path status on a T200 that don't trigger a controler
bounce. Is it possible at all ?

Full ChangeLog for the release :

        * [multipath] bump SERIAL_SIZE to 19
        * [multipath] add a new group_by_node_name pgpolicy
        * [multipath] move getopt policy parser to
        * [multipath] remove get_evpd_wwid()
        * [checkers] fix the wwn_set test in emc checker
          (Hergen Lange)
        * [checkers] treat the emc checker in the name to
          index translator function (Hergen Lange)
        * [multipath] print to stderr DM unmet requirement
          (Guido Guenther)
        * [multipath] fix realloc return value store not
          propagated to caller by merge_word() (Nicola Ranaldo)
