Thanks for the patches, and sorry for not responding to this bug for such a long long time. I'm a (relatively) new anaconda developer, and I'm responsible for anaconda's iscsi support now a days.
For 5.4 the iscsi code has been completely rewritten, so I'm pretty sure your patches no longer apply.
Given the long silence, and that no one else has requested the same feature. I wonder if you are still interested in having a working --target option for the iscsi kickstart command ?
