It does. Nonetheless, if there is a sane way to provide iscsitarget on
kfreebsd it is the better choice, as the latter is a kernel driver which
is presumably faster than a user space implementation like istgt is. On
the other hand also both alternatives could be provided.
However, looking on the FreeBSD iet port this is a really crazy patch on
top and around of the Linux compatibility layer. Maybe it would be
helpful to know whether there have been approaches to include this patch
into upstreams source and FreeBSDs plans related to iSCSI targets in
general, as we have to keep maintainability in mind.
Therefore I invite Xin LI, author of the FreeBSD port, to join this
discussion as he might be able to tell us more. Start of this discussion
is on <http://lists.debian.org/debian-bsd/2011/05/msg00001.html>.
