You can also do a block level approach. If you use the current tools on, then you can setup the initiator so we create a session 
through each nic on the main host that connects to the one portal 
ip-address on the target (see the iface info in the iscsi README). Then 
you can use dm-multipath to round-robin over all those sessions.

I have not done any benchmarking of dm-multipath + iscsi iface vs bonding.
