Thank you for the context. I disagree with this approach, but I understand 
now. If Martin would have asked me, I would have suggested that you guys 
copy the openSUSE approach, even though those are not upstream yet. It 
would have minimized the amount of re-work you have to do later, IMHO. But 
that is water over the bridge.

In that case, these changes (to be reviewed) are just yanking out the 
systemd/iscsid stuff. If that works for you, I see no objection. But I 
didn't see any addition of iscsistart. Won't that be needed?
