[CentOS] sdc1 without the sdc

So I'm working with the iSCSI Initiator and an EqualLogic SAN.  I'm
not sure when this might have happened, but it appears that the
/dev/sdc device is missing, yet the /dev/sdc1 partition exists AND is
mountable.  Is there a method to re-create the /dev/sdc device?  I
cannot dd or fdisk it, obviously, but I can mount the /dev/sdc1
partition and it works just fine.  Not having the /dev/sdc is messing
up my multipath setup (let alone whatever else might be affected).
