Subject: [dm-devel] [Patch 1 of 2]: scsi-dh + dm-mpath: propagate SCSI device deletion to multipath

The problem:
When a SCSI device attached to a device handler is deleted, userland processes currently performing I/O on the device will I/O hang forever.

The root cause:
When scsi_dh_activate returns SCSI_DH_NOSYS the activate_complete callback is not called and the error is not propagated to the
multipath layer. A similar situation occurs when the handler is in the process of being deleted (e.g. the SCSI device is in a SDEV_CANCEL or SDEV_DEL state).

Attached is the SCSI H/W handler part of this patch.
