Hmm? What exactly has initrd to do with this? I was under the impression that
you're trying to mount an iSCSI device via /etc/fstab, ie _after_ initrd has
run and the 'normal' SYSV init runs.
Is that correct?

Well, yes, that is what I am trying to.

The problem is just that "open-iscsi" is started *after* "boot.localfs", which
means that "fsck" bails out, while the file systems from the iSCSI devices (in
my case "/data" and "/home") are not available.

On the other hand, if "open-iscsi" had already been started in "initrd" (as is
the case, if "/" is on an iSCSI device), the iSCSI devices that holds the file
systems would be available at the time, when "boot.localfs" is being executed,
and everything would run as it should.
