The comments mention qla4xxx but nothing checks for that, it depends
on the node being None. Is there other hardware that could also trigger
this condition that would need to be handled differently?

There is no such other hardware. Having iscsi device in tree
without Node discovered and managed by anaconda/iscsiadm
is something new that qla4xxx in firmware boot mode requires.

I was thinking about adding some attribute or property to
iSCSIDiskDevice so that the conditions in some places
(generating dracut arguments, modifying ifcfg files) are more clear
but I'd like to do it also for some other cases and
I want to keep this post-RC 6.3 patch as safe as possible.

Perhaps the comment can be improved, what about
