I have one qlogic HW iSCSI card (qla4xxx). If someone gives me the
docs (or code), I will write a driver for tgt.

I've negotiated the access to a POWER server again. I will finish the
ibmvstgt driver if possible (however, now I'm not really sure whether
I can).

The ibmvstgt driver is a kind of a SRP target driver. If someone gives
me IB cards, possibly I could implement a generic SRP target driver
for tgt.

I have Chelsio 10G TOE NICs too. It has hardware support for iSCSI and
releases the gpl driver to support only real SCSI disk drives. If
their TOE driver will be accepted to the mainline (though I doubt it),
I would write its driver for tgt.

Of course, I don't forget about another iSCSI software target
implementation, called istgt. I'll work on it too.
