[dm-devel] [PATCH 0/3] HP HSV200 update

Hi Christophe,

this patchset implements a new field 'revision' for the hardware table, which is filled with the 'revision' field from the SCSI Inquiry. The reason for this is that HP switched the behaviour during a firmware update (ie from using START_STOP_UNIT to ALUA). And to support this properly we'll have to match against the 'revision' field, too.

In doing so I've found a bug in load_config(). Currently, we're loading
the default hardware table with comparing via regex. However, as the default table also contains regexp we'll end up comparing _two_ regexps, the outcome of which is a quite peculiar to say the least. We should rather be using a simple string match to avoid this pitfall.

So, this patchset does
- Correct load_config() to compare entries via string match
- Implements matching against the revision field
- Updates the hardware table for HP HSV200 support.
