dropbear-initramfs possible with open-iscsi during boot, using different NICs?

I have a system with dropbear-initramfs to unlock crypto containers during boot. The system has a second NIC that I will be using to attach iSCSI disks to the system, some of which / may wind up moving to. (/boot will remain attached locally.)

It seems that there is support for iSCSI during boot, however it's not clear to me how to get the kernel to bring up _both_ NICs so that dropbear and open-iscsi can run on different ones. (Based on my research, the ip= kernel parameter can only be specified once.)

Is there a supported way to configure two interfaces in the initrd to accomplish this?
