PATCH: libiscsi get_firmware_foo does not work without first creating a libiscsi context

PATCH: call sysfs_init from libiscsi_get_firmware_foo
The libiscsi_get_firmware_foo functions do not work without first creating a libiscsi context, while they are intended to work without a context. The problem is that the sysfs code needs to be initialized before use and it is used by
the fwparam code. This patch fixes this by calling sysfs_init() when
libiscsi_get_firmware_foo is called and sysfs_init was not called yet.
I'll clone this bug for 5.5 as I believe we need it there too.
Thanks & Regards,
I can add this to pkg CVS myself if you want, but I'm not sure if I have commit rights there, only one way to find out I guess :)

Go ahead and commit.
If you cannot commit, then ping me, or ping whoever controls it to get those permissions since you maintain the userspace libiscsi and know the code well you should have those permissions.
QA: this needs special hardware (ibft capable) to test, I'll verify this myself as soon as a build with the patch in has hit the nightlies. Can I get a QA ack on this please ?
Fixed in iscsi-initiator-utils-188.8.131.522-4.
verified comment #6.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
