If you are using linux-iscsi, you can just run iscsi_rescan (not sure 
the name right now, but if you look at the /etc/init.d/iscsi script in 
the restart section it will call the rescan script).

In older kernels I do not think the block layer will update the size. So 
you might have to unmount the FS, delete the device (echo 1 > 
/sys/block/sdX/device/delete), then rediscovery it by running iscsi_rescan.
