It is, though it needs to be brought current with asynchronous  
notifications, persistent reservations, error recovery level 2 and  
multiple connections per session.

So if any developer wants to get their feet wet with the iSCSI  
protocol and kernel driver development please subscribe to the iSCSI  
Enterprise Target list.

Also when testing it out use the 'noop' or 'deadline' io schedulers on  
the backend target storage as there currently is a performance issue  
with the 'cfq' scheduler.

It compiles clean on most architectures.
