The above confirms basically my understanding apart from one "minor"
confusion - I thought, that parallel to hardware solutions pure software
implementations were possible / being developed, like a driver, that
implements a SCSI LDD API on one side, and forwards packets to an IP
stack, say, over an ethernet card - on the initiator side. And a counter
part on the target side. Similarly to the USB mass-storage and storage
gadget drivers?
