Try the following:

  prio_callout "/sbin/mpath_prio_emc /dev/%n"
  path_grouping_policy group_by_prio

The -EEXIST message is a kernel bug, see the thread starting at
<http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/8/14/106> for more information.  It might be
possible to work around it by disabling async SCSI scanning, if not
there's a patch from Matthew Wilcox that removed most of those -EEXIST
errors (but not all the corner cases).

It kinda sucks that the kernel removes the SCSI devices pointing to
blocked rports.  Wonder if it's possible to disable that somehow...
