[dm-devel] Re: [PATCH 0/3] scsi_dh: Add ability to set parameters for scsi device handler



Your patch set works well but the scsi_dh_emc.c in rc1 does not.  I
applied your patches to the SLES 11 (2.6.27.23) and I am able to set the
parameter with reservations being handled correctly.  As noted in an
earlier email when I tested the 2.6.31-rc1 kernel with and without your
patches I would see a panic.  I compared the scsi_dh_emc.c in rc1 with
SLES 11.  There are a couple of differences.  The panic is resolved with
the changes from SLES 11.  I am not sure if these are changes made to
SLES 11 and not made to the upstream kernel or whether there was a patch
to the upstream kernel after 2.6.27 that broke this.  Here are the
changes when applied to rc1 that resolves the panic and allowed me to
test your patches.
