[dm-devel] [PATCH 0/3] Workqueue framework and ALUA hardware handler

Hi all,

this patchset adds some more abstraction to the multipath
hardware handlers.
- A generic workqueue framework is added, which allows the
  hardware handler to submit failover commands independent
  from multipath I/O.
- The exsting RDAC hardware handler is converted to use that
- A new SPC-3 ALUA hardware handler is added, using that
- A controller abstraction is added to the framework, which
  allows for command throttling based on the used controller.
- The RDAC hardware handler is modified to use the new
  controller framework.

This patchset superseded my previous implementation of the
SPC-3 ALUA handler.
Next plans are to update the table definitions and multipath-tools
to allow for a passing of the controller ID from userland; ALUA
doesn't specify for any controller information, so we have to
do this by hand based on prior knowledge of the storage array.

As per normal, comments etc welcome.
