kernel dm-mpath: Decode any SCSI sense data if no hw_handler
Last modified: 2011-02-09 16:54:29 EST
If no hw-handler is loaded, the dm_scsi_error_handler is never called. Wouldn't
it be sane to always call as the default error decoder it if no explicit
hw-handler is in place? It would only change the default behaviour in case SCSI
sense data was available, so it'd be pretty safe.
Given that probably >90% of all multipath deployments are going to be based on
SCSI, I think that would make a lot of sense.

How about this one.
Seems a reasonable thing to do.
If it ever causes problems in the future, we can simply move it into a SCSI
hw_handler and expect userspace to choose it if there isn't a more-specific one
Adding to next -udm.
