The upstream version of scsi_id kept within udev is changed to support
retrieving a device UID from older model (4, 5, and 6) Symmetrix storage
arrays via the new scsi_id option "pre-spc3-83".  Red Hat may have a version
of the udev RPM for update 2 with this change.

Setting up the Symmetrix device entry in /etc/multipath.conf to also use
this option "-ppre-spc3-83" will cause dm multipath to generate mapped
device names for Symmetrix logical units which do not have the vendor/model
prefix.

Both of these changes are in SuSE SLES 9 SP3 and it works as stated above.
