    SubjectConversion of LIO-Target to use include/scsi/iscsi_proto.h defs
    Greetings mnc and tomo,

    So as per our discussions last week, I will be moving forward with the
    conversion of the LIO-Target iSCSI fabric module v4 to use protocol and
    PDU include/scsi/iscsi_proto.h. As mnc and I agreed privately, this is
    going to the right level of integration for v2.6.37, as making libiscsi
    target mode aware does not really make for a target mode iSCSI stack
    sense due to the amount of logic in place for kernel <-> user with the
    Open-iSCSI initiator.

    So aside from the main tedious work that will be involved in actually
    producing a patch for this on my end, I did notice one immediate item
    that will cause an extra headache.. This involves the struct
    iscsi_init_* and struct iscsi_target* structure definitions in:;a=blob;f=drivers/target/lio-target/iscsi_protocol.h;hb=refs/heads/lio-4.0

    namely that they all have trailing 'u32 header_digest' member that a
    decent amount of utility code in iscsi_target.c and iscsi_target_util.c
    currently depends upon.

    So, assuming that the conversion of all struct iscsi_init_* and struct
    iscsi_target* to use include/scsi/iscsi_proto.h defs just involves
    checking structure size and renaming the member use in
    drivers/target/lio-target, would it be acceptable to do something like:

    /* iSCSI PDU Header */
    struct iscsi_cmd {
    uint8_t opcode;
    uint8_t flags;
    __be16 rsvd2;
    uint8_t hlength;
    uint8_t dlength[3];
    uint8_t lun[8];
    itt_t itt; /* Initiator Task Tag */
    __be32 data_length;
    __be32 cmdsn;
    __be32 exp_statsn;
    uint8_t cdb[ISCSI_CDB_SIZE]; /* SCSI Command Block */
    /* Additional Data (Command Dependent) */
    __be32 header_digest;

    for the existing PDU defs in iscsi_proto.h in order to the pain
    of having to convert this over in existing LIO-Target fabric module
    code..? This really help me alot.
