It will most certainly be evicted from memory. You might be better of using
the more recent versions of multipath and making your custom priority callout
as one of the libraries in the 'libprio' directory. You will need to modify the Makefile
and the libprio.c to include your code. Keep in mind if you segfault in it
you will bring down multipathd with it.

Oh, and do post it on this mailing list so that multipath can nativly support
the Compellant path priority code (I thought it was multibus??)
