I am not volunteering for taking responsibilities for the test (ah!),
but I would like to point out the infrastructure to test iSCSI root
should be fairly easy to set-up.  One can run iscsitarget or tgtd to use
as the iSCSI target.  It could even be run in a VM, and the
setup/teardown automated using cloud-config, puppet or whatever.

Just my 0.02$.
