Can you set your HBA driver to do failover?   ie: something like this
in modules.conf:

options qla2300 ql2xfailover=1 ql2xmaxqdepth=64

This works well for my servers connected to a CX-series array. :)   The
driver handles failing between HBAs (active-passive), and only has the
LUN presented once to the system.
