Every check interval, the daemon re-evaluates path priorities (through
external prioritizers), then re-compute path-groups priorities. If PG
priority order change, the highest-prio PG might be activated :

- immediatly, if "failback" is set to immediate
- never, if "failback" is set to manual
- in a number of prio-order stable consecutive checks, if failback
  set to #

Thus, failback/no-failback is a property of the external prioritizer, plus
a framework policy switch in the name of the "failback" config file keyword.

Well, at least it is the current design upstream.
You'll have to dig the changelog to see if RedHat packages all the
necassary bits.
