I can remove the 'Resolves:' line.

This resolves the error to stop a pool when there's no pool anymore,
whether that's because someone called StopPool earlier on a pool that
was duplicate but libvirt didn't catch it, or manually via messing with

The proposed series aims to detect duplicate pools on the same hosts.
It does not deal with duplicate pools on different hosts.
Even if we change the duplicate checks to only deal with the target,
as I suggested here:
(since libvirt's iscsi backend treats the same target on different hosts
as a duplicate pool, but the check above does not), this patch also
fixes stopping the pool after someone messes with iscsiadm manually,
