    iscsi tools: support hostnames in node mode
    You can now pass in hostnames as the portal argument.
    If you had:
    iscsiadm -m node -P 1
    Target: iqn.2008-09.com.meanminna:3
    		Iface Name: default
    Then you can do
    iscsiadm -m node -T iqn.2008-09.com.meanminna:3 -p somehostname -l
    and iscsiadm will match this.
    For discovery mode we already support hostnames, but we do not support
    mixing. So if you used a hostname for discovery:
    iscsiadm -m discoverdb -t st -p somehostname -D
    Then when you run other discovery commands you have to use the hostname.
    iscsiadm -m discoverydb -t st -p somehostname -o update -n someval -v
    will work, but
    iscsiadm -m discoverydb -t st -p -o update -n someval -v val
    would not.
    For node mode, you do not have any control what the target returns
    (and it probably returns a address) but for discovery you can pass
    in what you want, so I think this should be ok.
