Right now, my changes are here:

It works perfectly well if you're the ONLY device connecting to the
specified iSCSI target, but falls apart when something else has the lock
and doesn't clean up after itself.

From using set -x in there, I can see this when it runs:

On a side note, it looks like the -e is not very uniformly used:
block-iscsi:#!/bin/bash -e
block-iscsi-lock:#!/bin/bash -x
block-tap:#!/bin/bash -e

but probably gets set everywhere via xen-script-common.sh - hence things
dying easily.
