You get -ENODEV errors because you don't have an RDMA device.
This is probably due to the fact that the mlx5_ib (or mlx4_ib, depending
on your device) is not loaded.

Can you try loading mlx[4|5]_ib module before you enable iser on
a network portal?

I do see that mlx5 and mlx4 are requesting the mlx_ib module at probe
time, I wander how that didn't happen on your system..

I didn't see a endless loop of this error? can you share your
targetcli json?

Would it be possible to try with upstream kernel and report what you
are seeing?
