Dear Per,

can you please elaborate why the QLogic kernel module shipping with CentOS
5 / RHEL 5 is not recommended? It for sure is documented to be used at
least in the NetApp host utilities guide, without any warning to prefer
the driver package provided on the QLogic site. And I do not see any
problem using it with CentOS / RHEL 5 device-mapper-multipath on a lot of
systems.

Regards

Alexander
