if you're not using LVM but ARE using multipath then you should set up
user-friendly name or use a path from /dev/disk/by-*

Actually, this is not really true.  We have many GFS2 filesystems on a three

mounting the filesystems.  You really need to mount them by LABEL, so the
underlying disk identifiers becomes irrelevant.
