Running the thing on iscsi is a good idea, given that local storage is
linked up via usb while gb ethernet is hooked up via pcie.

Any particular reason why you boot the thing via tftp?  I'd expect just
having /boot on the sd card (which you need for boot anyway) is easier,
especially when it comes to kernel updates.
