This is a RHEL5 only issue.  In RHEL5, udev doesn't handle device
creation, so there is no guarantee that you will be able to operate on
the device when you get the uevent.  mpath_wait waits until the device
is actually available before continuing with the multipath.rules.
Removing this may cause devices to not be correctly symlinked or have
missing partition devices.

RHEL6 relies on udev to do the device creation, and so doesn't have this
issue at all.
