Do not use that. It is old. Use what is on the open-iscsi page.
git clone git://

That is expected in old versions. The nop handling was always done in 
the kernel in old vresions. In new versions (what will be in 2.6.25 and 
in the open-iscsi git tree I linked to above) we handle them in the kernel.

That is an old bug in the berilos code. Use the git code I pointed to 
and that should be fixed.

For boot you should just use iscsisgtart to start the session in the 
initrd. When the system comes up, you should then start iscsid, because 
that daemon handles error handling. That should all work in the git 
tree. In the berilos tree it should all be broken :)
