Default rq-based mpath failed path on SCSI target failure (malformed discard)

Hi,

I have been implementing discard support for the various DM targets. I
have a LUN that requires a 4K alignment for all discard requests. I
forced the issue (by misconfiguring the alignment such that discards
would be misaligned). Multipath failed the path once the SCSI layer got
the following error.

My question: shouldn't mpath _not_ fail the path for "Illegal
Request".. "Parameter value invalid"? The same request would fail on
any path given that the failure is on the target side (rejecting the
malformed discard request). Following setup is ext4 FS ontop of linear
DM mapping (dm-2) ontop of request-based mpath mapping (dm-1):
