[SCSI] iscsi: rm kernel iscsi handles usage for session and connection

from and

hw iscsi like qla4xxx does not allocate a host per session and
for userspace it is difficult to restart iscsid using the
"iscsi handles" for the session and connection, so this
patch just has the class or userspace allocate the id for
the session and connection.

Note: this breaks userspace and requires users to upgrade to the newest
open-iscsi tools. Sorry about his but open-iscsi is still too new to
say we have a stable user-kernel api and we were not good nough
designers to know that other hw iscsi drivers and iscsid itself would
need such changes. Actually we sorta did but at the time we did not
have the HW available to us so we could only guess.

Luckily, the only tools hooking into the class are the open-iscsi ones
or other tools like iscsitart hook into the open-iscsi engine from
userspace or prgroams like anaconda call our tools so they are not affected.
