Bug Description

The [libvirt] config option 'iscsi_use_multipath' is confusing because it's also used for Fibre Channel.

Since you can have iSCSI and FC attaches on the same compute host, it makes sense to have a single config option that enables checking for multipath attaches globally (for all transports).

Fix proposed to branch: master

    config option: rename libvirt iscsi_use_multipath

    This patch renames the libvirt conf section entry of
    iscsi_use_multipath to volume_use_multipath. Both iSCSI and
    FibreChannel libvirt volume drivers use this value to determine
    if multipath volume attachments are to be used. It's an n-cpu system
    wide value that's not specific to iSCSI.
