NPIV'd RDM Devices on RHEL Guest on C7000 Blades

The "HBAs" each Proliant Blade gets on a C7000 Enclosuer with vCOnnect are already NPIV'd.

Can I still do furtehr NPIV'ind byt giving the Virtual Linux guest its NPIV WWIDs via RDM? By this I mean the process used in the following URL:

Or is this not supported on Blades?

Am I better of using vHBAs - if it is already supported under vSphere 4.1? Or will I have the same issue of NOIV over NPIV since this is a Blade infrastructure?
