While I do believe the change is PROBABLY safe, I don't think it's
particularly justifiable as an SRU. Degraded mode is ugly but aside from
masking other bugs, doesn't make a difference at runtime.

at LP: #1833586. This makes me believe that this would only be accepted
if we block future SRUs to include this fix. I have just merged a new
open-iscsi (Debian and Ubuntu) containing:

commit 2a24c96

    * debian/open-iscsi.kmod drop: (LP: #1833586)
      no static module list is needed if we let iscsid load modules itself.

which also seems to be the issue for LP: #1884321, complaining about
grepping a modules-load.d in-existent file (depending from which version
you're coming from).
