When you send this again can you split it into 2 patches?

drivers/scsi/iscsi_tcp.* is one driver. It's similar to a NFS client and
it has a set of maintainers that you saw in the MAINTAINER file.

drivers/target/iscsi/iscsi_target_util.c is another driver which is similar
to a NFS server. Martin is the overall maintainer but it's a group effort
to review patches.

I've tested and reviewed the iscsi_tcp parts. You can add my:

Reviewed-by: Mike Christie <michael.christie@xxxxxxxxxx>

For the iscsi_target_util.c part, I'm reviewing it now and hoping Maurizio
and/or Dimitry might review as well.

One question on the target part I had is about the TODO above. Is that
something you were going to do, or is it something you are asking the target
people to do?
