We may need to pass the parameter through module param for alua device handler to optimize failover if incase retain_attached_hwhandler set in multipath.conf and hwhandler is set with non-tpgs device handler ex: '1 rdac'.

Growl, next time don't hand edit the patch.  Humans rarely understand
patch language well enough to get it right.  I fixed it this time, but
this is the last time ...

You actually added an extra line, so the second has to become +710,11

This is mangled, I think ...
