Subject: [PATCH] multipath: Evaluate request result and sense code

As we now see the result for every command we
can use it to make some more elaborate choices
if we should retry the request on another path.

This solves a potential data corruption when
a request is being terminated with RESERVATION
CONFLICT and queue_if_no_path is active; the
request will be queued until the reservation
status changes and then transmitted.

The above sense key list does not cover all the cases(at least for my case). For example, I have these requirements for my storage.
1. For certain check conditions I should be reporting I/O error immediately without retrying on other paths. You have covered some cases here but we a have bigger list.
2. For few other check condtions I should be calling activate_path instead of failing the path.
So, I am thinking it may be better to handle this with scsi device handlers(may be providing a new scsi_dh interface and fallback to default handling if the device handler does not handle the sense).  I am not sure if this is feasible but something to think about.
