Thanks for the patch. But I have to say I see little value in adding
this option to multipath. What's wrong with simply running 
"multipathd list paths format %N %R %n %r", or wrapping that command in
a simple shell script? Actually, this has nothing to do with multipath
at all, it's really transport-related information similar to 
"lsscsi -t" output.

Regards,
Martin
