Since 6.6.0-rc1 came out I decided to give blktests srp another try with the current
rdma for-next branch on my Ubuntu (debian) system. For the first time in a very long
time all the srp test cases run correctly multiple times. I ran each one 3X.

I had tried to build multipath-tools from source but ran into problems so I reinstalled
the current Ubuntu packages. I have no idea what was the root cause that finally went
away but I don't think it was in rxe as there aren't any recent patches related to the
blktests failures. I did notice that the dmesg traces picked up a couple of lines after
the place where it used to hang. Something about setting an ALUA timeout to 60 seconds.

Thanks to all who worked on this.
