I too would like a clean shutdown mechanism.  For testing and system
scripts.  Target should go away cleanly:  drop incoming tasks, wait
for pending ops to finish and send responses, drop existing
connections, close 3260, flush logs, exit.  It may be somewhat
complex to get right.  Recently iscsid grew a SIGTERM handler too.
