You'll later need multipath support with cciss or with something else?
As I wrote, for proper cciss support current multipath git is needed.
This is AFAIK the only hardware that is supported in upstream git but
not in any released version. All the rest (FC, iSCSI) should work well.

I've just uploaded a new version of multipath-tools that blacklists
cciss. I'd be great if you could test if your cciss disks get correctly
blacklisted. In case you desperately need cciss, please file a wishlist
bug to package up current git. I will try to do it soon then - help
appreciated of course.
