correct - ldiskfs, using 8* raid6 luns per ME4084

we just had blacklist, WWNs and mappings, we were missing any ME4
specific device {} settings, however I've since found the magic
incantation from

device {
       vendor "DellEMC"
       product "ME4"
       path_grouping_policy "group_by_prio"
       path_checker "tur"
       hardware_handler "1 alua"
       prio "alua"
       failback immediate
       rr_weight "uniform"
       path_selector "service-time 0"
and it seems to be working a whole lot better :-)
