I confess to having lost the plot on the iface rearrangements.  I'm
trying to mount up a remote iser target using 2.6.26-rc3 and
open-iscsi git HEAD userspace plus hacks to read the new sysfs

The old style, before login, was to modify node.transport_name,
which now has been changed to live on iface, apparently.  Doing the
obvious switch doesn't work:

    aib01$ iscsiadm -m node -p,3260 --op update \
                    -n iface.transport_name -v iser
    iscsiadm: Cannot modify iface.transport_name. Use iface mode to update this 

and I can't get the hang of the "-m iface" syntax.

This commit suggests that I'm in over my head:

    Do not allow iface setting to be changed in node mode.
    This temporarily breaks iscsi_discovery and probably other apps
    for distros that wanted to set iface.transport_name. In the
    patch to add default a iser iface we broke node.transport_name,
    so this means there is no backward compat for that setting
    and you must use the new default iser iface.
    Before this is released we will add some compat code somewhere and
    fix up the check in iscsiadm for iface settings based on Dorn's patch.

Are you talking about Doron's parameter categorization work?
I'm having a hard time finding that again.  Any suggestions
for a quick fix to play with iser in 2.6.26-rc3?
