I won't need cciss support in the near future as I will be connecting FC 
disks to the server. I will test the new version of multipath-tools 
(with cciss blacklisted), if you give me the location of the .deb. Or 
will it enter unstable?

If I still have a spare server with an cciss card when the git version 
is packaged, I will help test/debug it.
