If we change the implementation to use a separate IP address and
separate MAC address for iSCSI, will it be acceptable?  The iSCSI IP/MAC
addresses will be unknown to the Linux TCP stack and so no sharing of
the 4-tuple space will be needed.

The patches will be very similar, except that all inet calls and
notifiers will be removed.
