What do you want to do exactly? Is the idea with your patch we would create
an sg device, then in userpsace you would do some scan related commands. If
you find devices then you use sysfs to have scsi-ml scan/add a specific device

echo 5 0 0 8 > host5/scan


It's not really clear to me why you need the sg device, and can't just do?

echo - - - > .../hostN/scan

? Do you only want to add specific devices like you are doing some sort of
LUN masking on the initiator side?

Is the issue that you need the sg device there, so you can detect when a device
is no longer present on the target and then you will have userspace remove the
device via the sysfs delete file?
