RedHat 7.1 has a multipath block driver that has worked well in our testing.
We put XFS on top.

This question might be better directed at the linux kernel list, hardware
failover is usually invisible to the filesystem, being handled at the
block layer. SGI does have ports of some of the Irix SCSI code which
includes failover capability for certain device types, but I cannot
say when or how this would be available.
