Bug Description

iscsitarget dkms module fails to build with 3.5 kernel as proposed for 12.04.2.

[Test Case]
Install Ubuntu 12.04.2
sudo apt-get install iscsitarget-dkms
Fails to build

[Regression Potential]
DKMS module has to support 3.5 and 3.2 kernels; this is done using DKMS patches which are applied when building for 3.2.

This has been tested but is probably when problems may occur.

[Original Bug Report]

The iscsitarget dkms package fails to build with the new 3.5 kernel for 12.04.2:
