Ok, here is the commit diff for adding Initiator ACLS to
iscsi/$IQN/$TPGT/ under the acls/ subdirectory (instead of "initiators"
in the example above).

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/nab/lio-core-2.6.git;a=commitdiff;h=0a451affbe236b5538e5de06242372715e3ac52c;hp=374e8ace84ca58490be22d881f017d48c6742b50

Other than the name change, everything is functioning in the commit as
described in the example above. I am able to successfully mkdir(2) and
rmdir(2) iscsi/$IQN/$TPGT/acls/$INITIATOR_IQN, as well as create the
SymLinks from iscsi/$IQN/$TPGT/lun/lun_* to
iscsi/$IQN/$TPGT/acls/$INITIATOR_IQN/lun_* to create the Initiator TPGT
LUN Mappings.

There are a couple of remaining items that I am still working on WRT the
Initiator ACL code. One is that the CmdSN Queue Depth for the Initiator
is hardcoded. This needs to be a configfs attribute under
iscsi/$IQN/$TPGT/acls/$INITIATOR_NAME/, and then enabled with a
attribute under the same $INITIATOR_NAME directory. Another is
assigning READ-ONLY (its hardcoded to R/W for now) access to one of the
initiator's TPG LUN mappings. I was thinking name in the TPG LUN
Symlink destination name, we could include "lun_0:RO" in order to make
this Initiator's LUN be READ-ONLY.

Anyways, this are pretty minor and I should be commiting the remaining
pieces over the weekend.
