Since we're already maintaining IET/iscsitarget alongside the mainline 
alternative, could we just replace STGT (old) with LIO (new as of 
2.6.38) and keep iscsitarget?  There's no doubt users should be moving 
away from IET as it ages, but many people out there are running filers 
dependent on IET and I think involuntarily migrating to something new is 
asking too much. Not to mention, I looked at the openstack's 
nova-storage volume manager yesterday, and iscsitarget is used extensively.
