glad you plan to put your nose in my stuff, considering the quality of
the feedback you give to the dm-devel community.

The multipath-tools' white list concerns only the storage side of the
SAN : array controlers. The network layer and hbas have no known
limitations to work around : that is the benefit of the
top-of-the-layer-stack dm-multipath implementation. In fact you could
multipath through hbas from different vendors and at different speed ...
and that is quite unique in this (high-cost) world :)

These days the config file is quite self explanatory, as you will see.

Whish you fun,

PS: I cc: dm-devel as Q&A are somewhat of global interest.
