Re: [dm-devel] path coalescing once more



Thanks Sean. Did you see my latest post where I printed the pp->serial after the problem happens. It looks like the pp->wwid and the pp->serial are pointing to the same thing. I am looking into how pp->wwid gets formed for a path, but the correct serial for that path is there. Since the dm is looked up by the wwid and not the serial though, it gets into this problem. 

Thanks,
Brian
