The multipath configuration I have by default uses the following binary as the 
"getuid_callout" for determining paths:

Based on the name of that binary, I was guessing it uses scsi_id.  In any case, 
I'm open to suggestions on what to replace the "getuid_callout" setting with 
that would work inside a Xen domU.  If there's something else that is able to 
reliably determine multiple paths to a disk other than the above scsi_id 
(whatever it uses), I would be interested to know.  I thought about using dd to 
input the X bytes of the disk, then run that through some sort checksum (shasum 
or something like that), but I'm not familiar enough to know if that would 
actually be reliable.
