Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH 3/4] scsi_dh_rdac: Adding the match function for rdac device handler

This patch introduces the match function for rdac device handler. Without this,
sometimes handler attach fails during the device_add.  The match function was
introduced by this patch

As stated in the other mail, I guess we would need to have a check if the LUN is in ALUA mode. And, btw, the _original_ intention was to allow vendor-specific device_handler to do some better probing, eg querying some vendor-specific VPD pages. Especially for RDAC it would make far more sense to query the existence and format of one of the RDAC-specific VPD pages (eg 0xC2, 0xC4, or 0xC8) and use that for matching. Then you could do away with the vendor/model array altogether here and we wouldn't need to update the rdac handler every time a new array comes out or has been rebranded by some OEM.
