PATCH: call sysfs_init from libiscsi_get_firmware_foo

Hi Mike,

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 :)
