    Why not using fully dynamical loadable kernel modules as done with Solaris
    since 1992? Since that time nobody cares because what you need is auto-loaded
    on demand and there is absolutely no need for a manual configuration.

    BTW: Introducing an orthogonal SCSI based implementation would save a lot of
    code. The model currently used on Linux is duplicating a lot of unneeded code
    in target drivers and the SCSI glue code is only a few KB (less than 30k on
