Ok, it seems to be the TUR path checker.

When I run the multipath command to create the initial device map I get
the UNDERRUN error reported for each target.

Jan  9 10:36:40 web-4-09 kernel: scsi(3:0:5) UNDERRUN status detected 0x15-0x800.
Jan  9 10:36:40 web-4-09 kernel: scsi(3:0:5) UNDERRUN status detected 0x15-0x800.

However, I can mount the multipath device and do sustained, error free IO
to it, so long as multipathd is not running.

If I start multipathd I start seeing errors within 35 minutes of starting
the deamon.

Jan 9 10:25:08 web-4-09 kernel: scsi(3): Found in Pending queue pid821520, State = 6., fcport state=4 jiffies=37d2967 Jan 9 10:25:08 web-4-09
kernel: scsi(3:0:6) qla2x00_done: did_error = 2, comp-scsi= 0x0-0x0.
etc... <snip>

If I use the readsector 0 path_checker, I still get the UNDERRUN
errors on initial device map creation, but I don't get any further
errors[1] after starting multipathd and it all works correctly.
