[dm-devel] [PATCH 0/8] scsi_dh update

Hi James, Hannes,

These are the same set of patches that Hannes sent early this morning with the 
prelog below.

I just ported it to compile clean on top of 2.6.26-git6.

Made 3 additional changes:
 1. Added a break under MODE_SELECT option in function get_req() (in 3/8)
 2. Added the ifndef portion for scsi_dh_attach() and scsi_dh_detach (in 6/8)
 3. Moved the definition of SCSI_DH_DEV_UNSUPP from 6/8 to 3/8.


------ Here is the 0/8 from Hannes's original patchset. -----------

Hi James,

this is the (hopefully final) update to my scsi_dh patchset.
Features are:

- Move device-table matching into the device_handler infrastructure,
 so that individual drivers don't have to implement it themselves
- Adds a 'dh_state' sysfs attribute for manually attaching device
 handler to new or unknown disks; this allows to override the
 internal device tables
- Update the dm-multipath code to attach the device handler
 specified in the multipath configuration
- Add a cache to speed up lookup of several identical devices
- Update existing EMC, RDAC, and hp_sw device handler to use
 the new infrastructure
- Add new SPC-3 ALUA device handler

The NetApp device handler has been left out for now as it's still
under development.

Please apply.
