I've had a busy week but I'm planning to review this patch soon and compare it with what I've been working on locally.

Any update?
Comment 3 Maurizio 2018-09-06 17:45:15 UTC
The attached patch is obsolete. Please look at bug #227313
Comment 4 John Nielsen 2019-02-15 17:53:55 UTC
I'm clearly not going to get to this. If someone else wants to take over maintainership of the port feel free. Or since the upstream hasn't been responsive in a long time we could mark the port as broken on 12 and newer. The in-tree iSCSI support and pivot root  ability should be an adequate replacement.
Comment 5 crest 2019-11-20 20:41:32 UTC
Rerooting isn't a full replacement because it requires the kernel and its initial root file system to come from somewhere other than the runtime root file system. With isboot you can boot from iSCSI with iPXE (either flashed into the NIC or chainloaded) keeping the system (kernel and userland) on s single iSCSI target under full control of the iSCSI initiator.
