Description of problem:
Path failure messages are seen during the creation of a snapclone/snapshot for 
a LUN.

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

How reproducible:
This can be reproduce by creating a snapclone/snapshot for a LUN and 
constantly monitoring the path status.Paths are seen to be failed for a 
fraction of time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a snapclone/snapshot for a LUN.
2.Check the path status during this process.
Actual results:
Paths are seen to be going down for some time.

Expected results:
Path failures are not expected during this process.

Additional info:
Creation of a snapclone/snapshot for a LUN returns a Unit Attention with a 
changed Inquiry data,for TUR. With this, the checker marks the path as down.

But,these conditions can be retried for a fixed number of times to see if it 
is corrected and then the paths marked accordingly.

The patch to fix this is availale in the dm-devel mailing list at -
