Anaconda trace back with more than 8 SCSI luns attached to qla2x00 driver
with fs error. This is probably releated to scsi support beyond 8 luns
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install 7.0 with qlogic QLA2200 card and 10 scsi luns attached
2. When get to formatting will error out
Actual Results: get anaconda trace back error
Traceback (innermost last):

Local variables in innermost frame:
I do not believe more than 16 partitions per SCSI device are supported by the
kernel. Can you avoid creating this many on that drive?
I am not making additional slice, I have 16 sd devices when I get this error. I
am also using sg devices.
The traceback indications that it failed on device /dev/sdp16. There can only be
devices /dev/sdp1 through /dev/sdp15 as far as I know. Can you reduce the number
of partitions on that device?
