Agreed, but that indeed really is a *feature request*. To make this possible in
some sane manner we need a way to ask iscsiadm which device node / number the
iscsi subsystem has gotten / given to a certain target. Even better would be a
feature where iscsiadm on login would print the device name to stdout once the
login completes.

Actually having iscsiadm print the devicename it has gotten for a disk after
login would be absolutely great to have for anaconda too. Currently we're going
through much pain in anaconda to find a disk after we've logged in to the iscsi
target, and even when we've got a disk we do not know which disks corresponds
to which iscsi target.

I like the idea of iscsiadm login printing the device node for the disk after
login so much I'll file an RFE against iscsi-initiator-utils right away.
