I have not personally tested this, but many others are currently running dm
multipath over iscsi without problems.  As long as you have an active/active
controller on your storage array, you usually don't need any special
configuration to make dm multipathing work (other than to make sure that the
device is not blacklisted). Many people using iscsi with dm multipath are on
both dm-devel@redhat.com and linux-cluster@redhat.com  If you have any
questions, either of these lists should be able to help you.
