  I've been lurking on the list for a while, and I just found something
that would probably be of great value to everyone. While I've heard
people ask for it, I haven't seen anybody who knew of a patch to provide
multipath failover for Linux.  Linuxcare developed multipath failover
when they made the Sun T3 driver, although I haven't seen it publicized.
Their kernel patch provides a generic multipath-failover layer for
linux. The kernel patch is fairly small and clean, and comes with a
couple userspace tools to set everything up. The URLS are below
