would you agree if I leave the easy version in just to fix the potential
problems if iscsi_aio_discard is called with too high nb_sectors or
on a storage where UNMAP is unsupported.

I will add a TODO with the comment that the limit of iscsi->max_unmap should
be replaced by a loop once the routine is replaced by a coroutine?

I promised to take care of this for 1.7.0 latest.
