[Bug 630434] Server refuses to boot, while used iSCSI based non "/" file system is not available.

A work-around to fix the issue with not getting "onboot" configured iSCSI
sessions attached during system boot up, when root is not on an iSCSI device,
is to make use of the overriding feature of "mkinitrd" (only documented in the
sources) by creating the file "/etc/sysconfig/initrd" containing the setting of

See attached template of how a "/etc/sysconfig/initrd" could look like.

Please, be aware of the bug in "mkinitrd" (bug 717590) that prevents the
overriding feature to work correctly, although this bug does not prevent the
feature of setting "root_iscsi=1" from working.

After having set "root_iscsi=1" in "/etc/sysconfig/initrd", all you need is to
rerun "mkinitrd" to get an "initrd" that will attach all "onboot" configured
iSCSI sessions during system boot up.
