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.
