Hey James,

My initial take on that was that pqi_take_device_offline(), which is 
called just after, will print the "re-scanning " message with the same 

As they will be both printed in the same error context and one after the 
other, I though that would make sense to represent the same information 
to ease the reading like cause -> consequence.

As the message is about the LUN itself, which is reported faulty, I 
though it would worth reporting the info that way.

Shall I consider printing also the disk name in addition ?
