Those data structures may be created by the SCSI layer, but you know
that the hardware is all controlled by the ATA layer. Therefore you
know there is no physical hardware corresponding to the host or target
device.

That's right. And you know why? It's because the SCSI host and target
do not refer to power-manageable hardware.
