    Actually a command set driver like sd surely wants last_busy (time of
    last use) separate for each LU for auto-spindown, doesn't it?

    I'm not sure about the rest, i.e. delay, counter, flags.

    include/scsi/scsi_tgt*.h are for local target implementations. The
    representation of "remote" targets, as seen by local initiators, is
    include/scsi/scsi_device.h's struct scsi_target.
