Hi Erez, Thanks for the response. We did manage to do a patch. But the reason I posted this was to say that many will have this same need of patching and so it can be folded in to open-iscsi makefiles, so that it will help a lot of people.
Our patch was also very similar to the one you pointed out, but we did the patch before seeing this earlier post! (reinventing unnecessarily..)
