Patch to add the -n option to multipath call

starting with device-mapper-multipath-0.4.9-17.fc16, multipath has a -n option that disables syncing with udev. It needs to be called with this option by fedora-storage-init during startup
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2011-07-20 13:50:35 EDT
Why do we need to disable syncing with udev - I would think we would want to.
Comment 2 Ben Marzinski 2011-07-21 01:09:55 EDT
So multipath is usable for the alpha release. I'm not sure why udev synchronization is failing during startup, but it is. And you can't boot the machine at all with multipathing enabled if its udev synchronization code is also enabled.  It's quite possible that when I figure out the root of this issue, it can safely be re-enabled. But I haven't found the root cause of this issue yet, and the alpha release is coming quickly, and I'd really like people to be able to use multipathing and be able to reboot their machines for alpha.

Pushed in 9.31-2 as a patch; will wait to put upstream.
