Description of problem:
I install my OS on an EMC Clariion LUN. After the install completes the host gets rebooted. Once the host is back up I find that /boot is not mounted. In the /var/log/messages file is see errors LABEL=/boot duplicate not mounted. If all but one active paths are removed I do not see the problem. The issue is that during the system boot up the LABEL does not appear to be in any way compared to the duplicate LABEL's. In a multipath enviroment every device will need to be available through several alternate paths. A simple check for a unique disk identifier would most likely fix the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install OS on multipath target with 2 or more active methods of connection

Expected Results:  /boot was not mounted.
