If I understand correctly with this patch i'll be able to export a whole
sheepdog cluster in a single iSCSI block device and then mount it on a
different server that will run the VMs ?
Like a distributed SAN, for example:

3 sheepdog node merged in a single cluster and then exported to a single
iSCSI device.
In front of them, will be 5 debian boxes that mounts the iSCSI device and
run VM from it ?

If one debian box will die, other 4 will take care of the lost VM by running
them from the iSCSI devices archieving fault tollerance.

If one sheepdog node will die, other sheepdog will takeover it and move the
iSCSI target to an available node?
