It is not influencing my vague plans anyway. Note I was seeking general
consensus (and help) for iSCSI on kfreebsd . Basically I have two
(reasonable) choices, a pure user space driver which would not be
affected by kfreesd-9 at all, or alternatively a port of the Linux
enterprise target  kernel driver, which is heavily tied to the
FreeBSD kernel in a huge out-of-tree patch .
With all due to respect to FreeBSD porters I wasn't sure we shall adapt
this patch for kfreebsd, since there - in my opinion - some doubts
remain, whether this patch is maintainable for an entire stable release
cycle. Unfortunately I got no response from either the porters or
upstream regarding this. Therefore I am still undecided what approach I
should choose (which is basically the reason why I didn't talk to
pkg-iscsi-maintainers after all, which had to agree on the patch
approach as well). Finally the kfreebsd kernel driver porting is blocked
by several bugs, notably #630509 and #625261 came me in my mind.
As I'm no Debian developer (yet), I'd moreover prefer to maintain the
kfreebsd driver in a team with BSD porters/developers, rather than all
alone. As nobody signaled interest back then in  I didn't look any
further by now. If someone with full upload capabilities is interested
to join my approaches, just let me know.
