Bug Description

iscsid in the version 2.0-871 is not able to reconnect to a session established from the initramfs (with iscsistart)

To prevent to hang up the system by loosing the root-filesystem, in the open-iscsi initscript was introduced following workarround:

if [ -f /etc/iscsi/iscsi.initramfs ] && [ -d /sys/class/iscsi_session/session1 ]; then
    # We most likely are running with our root on iscsi
    # starting open-iscsi at this point would hang the system (LP: #850960)
    exit 0

Please update to open-iscsi-2.0-872, so you can remove this workarround.
