SubjectFireWire/SBP2 Target mode
Hi folks,

Now that we have a nice SCSI target framework in the kernel, and drivers
either in-tree or being worked on for iSCSI, FC, FCoE, SAS and iSER, I
was wondering about the possibility of adding FireWire to that list.
Apple Macs have had a FireWire Target Disk mode for a long time, and
there is even a program called Endpoint[1] that apparently does this on
Linux though it looks completely untouched since 2003 and no longer
works as it depends on the old FireWire stack.

I would very much like to see something like this added to the kernel,
and would very much like to contribute to writing this feature. However
my kernel development knowledge is very limited indeed so this would
require a lot hand-holding and mentoring.

What's the interest in such a feature? Would anyone be able to give some
(a lot?) of their time to help write this?
