Description of problem:
This is a Feature Request from LSI to include the latest patches for scsi_dh_rdac and device mapper in RHEL 5.4. LSI(with the help from opensource comminity) has developed few critical fixes for rdac device handler and also device mapper in last couple of months. We think that these patches are not included in in RHEL 5.4 kernel. We want Redhat to pick up these patches. I will attach the patches very soon. Right now I am waiting for Tom Coughlan's response to get access to alpha sources.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Proposed patch for scsi_dh_rdac.c for RHEL 5.4
This patch contains all the latest changes to drivers/scsi/device_handler/scsi_dh_rdac.c file. All these patches are approved by the community.
I am working with Jesse Larrew(email@example.com) in getting RedHat 5.4 synced up with mainline code thru Bugzilla Bug #489582.
Fine.. Lets sync up on this on Monday. Lets make sure we have all the patches included in RHEL 5.4.
As per the discussion I had with Chandra, he will be syncing RHEL 5.4 sources with the mainline sources for scsi_dh_rdac changes. He will also be adding the latest patch https://www.redhat.com/archives/dm-devel/2009-April/msg00367.html .
I will mark this BZ as duplicate of Bug 489582.
Patches are already sent to Jesse Larrew to integrate the changes into RHEL 5.4.
There is another bug 489582 which is opened for the same reason. I will mark this as duplicate.
