OK so as I understand it that means that the line

hardware handler "1 emc 0 1"

now fails to function correctly because dm-emc no longer exists.  That
makes this a functionality regression from 2.6.26 because of this
commit:

    [SCSI] scsi_dh: Remove hardware handlers from dm
    
    This patch removes the 3 hardware handlers that currently exist
    under dm as the functionality is moved to SCSI layer in the earlier
    patches.

Because we haven't actually moved all the functionality.
