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?

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.
