Description of problem:
"multipath -ll" displays incorrect size of the device. If the lun size of 4.5GB is created, the DM node for this lun displays size=4GB. This truncation happens because of the type of variable used to assign the size is "unsigned long". MSA LUNs are not created exactly with the user requested size, it can slightly differ from the requested size, so we see the problem of displaying 1 GB less if the LUN size is slightly less.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a LUN size (not integral multiple) of say 4.5 GB, present to a host.
2.Rescan or reboot the host and Configure multipath using "multipath -v3"
3.view the DM multipath display using "multipath -ll", observe the value of size of the DM device created above.
Actual Results: displays the incorrect device size truncated to previous integral value.
Expected Results: should have displayed exact size say 4.5GB (in our example)
