  Okay, patch is attached.  I wound up doing some things differently
than I mentioned -- the trouble with KERNEL_TARGET turned out to just
be because I hadn't installed the needed headers, and I added the
dpkg-divert script as a Makefile target instead of a snippet of code
in the docs that people have to cut and paste.  I also mentioned the
ib_iser situation (which I hope I described accurately).
  Anyway, let me know if this looks okay for you.

-If you choose to install the Debian packages instead of building from source,
-please read the file /usr/share/doc/linux-iscsi/README.debian for information
-on how to build kernel modules against your specific kernel.
 For Red Hat/Fedora and Debian distributions open-iscsi can be installed by
 typing "make install". This will copy iscsid and iscsiadm to /usr/sbin, the
 init script to /etc/init.d, and the kernel modules: iscsi_tcp.ko, libiscsi.ko
 and scsi_transport_iscsi to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/scsi/
 overwriting existing iscsi modules.
+For Debian, be sure to install the linux-headers package that
+corresponds to your kernel in order to compile the kernel modules
+('aptitude install linux-headers-`uname -r`').  You may also wish to
+run 'make -C kernel/ dpkg_divert' before installing kernel modules if
+you run a Debian-provided kernel.  This will use dpkg-divert(8) to
+move the packaged kernel modules out of the way, and ensure that
+future kernel upgrades will not overwrite them.
+Also, please be aware that the compatibility patches that enable these
+iscsi modules to run on kernels older than 2.6.25 will not update the
+ib_iser module; you may get warnings related to mismatched symbols on
+this driver, in which case you'll be unable to load ib_iser and
+open-iscsi simultaneously.
