i use the atrpm iscsitarget for a long time now in high traffic setups. 
it performs very well, and is rock solid. no problems until now. go for 
it :) but disabling the atrpms repo after installing the iscsitarget 
wouldnt be a bad idea.

i wont go with userspace solutions like tgt, my benchmarks showed much 
more higher system load, lower transfer rates and lags from time to 
time. go for the kernel implemention
