There's a set of default for different classes of devices. I'll remove
the "-n" but I don't think cciss is well supported by the multipath
version in lenny. Current upstream git has it's own patch checker for
cciss (which we can't backport easily since the whole structure of the
path checkers changed).

Does it multipathing work cciss if you remove "-n"? Do the patchs get
detected correctly. Could you attache the output of "multipath -l"?
