It depends on what target you want to run. Are you just wanting to run
the iscsi/iser parts? You did not want to run ibm vscsi did you?

For targets that require hardware like lpfc or qla2xxx, there will be
some kernel bits like the scsi_tgt_* code and LLD driver changes. But a
good chunk like is still in userspace.
For targets like software iscsi, it is all userspace.
