For the iscsi target, I think it is. For iscsi initiator drivers like
bnx2i and be2iscsi we have made them convert from their headers to
common linux ones including switching from driver specific defs to

For the merging of any target core stuff though, I do not think it is
critical. The core target stuff does not need to be merged with a
software iscsi target. They can do in at different times.
