What you are trying to achieve is not a good idea with
corosync/pacemaker since iSCSI is a block device. To create a cluster
over a LUN will require a cluster aware filesystem like NFS, CIFS etc.
The proper way of doing this with iSCSI would be using multipath to a
SAN since iSCSI LUNs cannot be shared. Unfortunately the current
implementation of ZFS over iSCSI does not support multipath (a
limitation in libiscsi). Also may I remind you that Iet development has
stopped in favor of LIO targets (http://linux-iscsi.org/wiki/LIO). I am
currently working on making an implementation of LIO for proxmox which
will use a different architecture than the current ZFS over iSCSI
implementation. The new implementation will support multipath. As this
is developed in my spare time progress is not a high as it could be.

Alternatively you could look at this:
