[dm-devel] [PATCH] dm-mpath: Two minor fixes while processing activate_path

This patch adds two minor fixes while processing device mapper path activation.

1. Skip failed paths while calling activate_path.
   If the path is already failed then activate_path will fail for sure. We 
   don't have to call in that case. In some case this might cause prolonged retries unnecessarily.

2. changed the mis-leading message if the activate path fails with SCSI_DH_NOSYS.
