It seems that 'iscsi_auto' should invoke 'iscsistart --fwparam_network' in
addition to -b.
The --fwparam_network will set up networking that was declared in iBFT.
There is some overlap here with the 'ip=' kernel command line parameter,
and it is possible that the two could conflict. For example, if the
kernel command line had
And iBFT was configured such that
$ cat /sys/firmware/ibft/ethernet0/ip-addr
$ cat /sys/firmware/ibft/ethernet0/gateway
$ cat /sys/firmware/ibft/ethernet0/subnet-mask
If we were to invoke 'iscsistart --fwparam_network' after having done
configure_networking, then the iscsi parameters would be in affect.
Its may be arguable that this is simply misconfiguration of the ip=
Also of note, /run/net-<device>.conf will not be written if iscsistart
configures the networking as opposed to 'ipconfig' doing it.
