iSCSI devices are not automatically mounted when using multipath in fstab

Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP1
After the system is booted you can successfully mount the device.
For SLES 10 SP1 here is the necessary information:
Problem here is the multipath setup.
In /etc/udev/rules.d/85-mount-fstab.rules you'll find:
SUBSYSTEM=="block", ACTION=="add", KERNEL=="sd*[0-9]|hd*[0-9]", RUN+="mount.sh"
So we'll only do an automated mount for 'sd' and 'hd' devices; and as multipath devices are 'dm-X' they won't be mounted automatically.
To fix this add dm-* so they will mount automatically.
Entry in /etc/fstab for multipath iSCSI device (hotplug option is needed).
Complete /etc/udev/rules.d/85-mount-fstab.rules file ( we added |dm-* )
SUBSYSTEM=="block", ACTION=="add", KERNEL=="sd*[0-9]|hd*[0-9]|dm-*", RUN+="mount.sh"
