    ISCSISTART: Bring up the corresponding network interface for iboot
    This is needed for the iSCSI offload boot.
    Snip from M. Christie:
    Note that we must bring up the interface before iface_setup_from_boot_context,
    because we will want iscsi_sysfs_get_host_no_from_hwaddress to be able to match
    a MAC to a iscsi host.  For some bnx2i cards, the card has to be ifupd for the
    iscsi interface to have a MAC. If it is not ifupd we have seen MACs with all
    zeros or no iscsi_hosts on different cards.
