FWIW, I've had good luck compiling and running the iSCSI target from 
http://iscsitarget.sourceforge.net/ on CentOS 5. There aren't all the 
bells and whistles of ZFS, I suppose, but it's pretty simple to set 
up. Also, given gigabit ethernet and a decent switch, its bonnie++ 
numbers aren't bad at all.
