There is also the iSCSI Enterprise Target besides the technology  
preview of 'tgt' which is more then just iSCSI, but a generic SCSI  
target that can also do FC and FCoE.

IET has a kernel device device driver though that will need to be  
maintained through kernel updates, but works extremely well.
