Description of problem:
"multipath -ll" takes longer time for updating the path status, when the utility is executed just after disabling the switch ports to storage.
This time increases as the retrycount and timeout values are increased for Qlogic HBA driver. However "multipath -l" comes out immediately.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.disable the path to storage, by disabling the port of the concerned switch.
2.issue "multipath -ll" on the host.
Actual Results: Once the command is executed it hangs for a long time and comes out with the new status of the paths.
