Package: iscsitarget-source
Version: 0.4.15-4
Severity: normal

|   CC [M]  /usr/src/modules/iscsitarget/kernel/tio.o
| /usr/src/modules/iscsitarget/kernel/tio.c: In function ‘tio_init’:
| /usr/src/modules/iscsitarget/kernel/tio.c:114: error: too many arguments to function ‘kmem_cache_create’
| make[3]: *** [/usr/src/modules/iscsitarget/kernel/tio.o] Error 1

The fix is as simple as stripping the last NULL argument from the
kmem_cache_create() function inside kernel/iscsi.c and kernel/tio.c
(and putting a "#if LINUX_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION(2,6,23)..."
around it).
