It sounds like a bug, but to talk about it intelligently it'd be
nice to have precise reproduction instructions.  I'd encourage you
to file a bug, so we can collect all the information there.  Feel
free to file it against 'qemu-kvm (Ubuntu)'.  If it turns out to
be something else, we'll re-target it.

To see how I tested iscsi last year, search for 'iscsi boot' at
