I changed a couple of lines of code in the iscsi target driver, and
that seems to fix the segfault, however, I notice that the fc/fc.c
driver is very different and handled in the kernel.

What I don't know then is whether the in-kernel portions return -errno
codes, or return tgtadm_error.h error codes (which seems unlikely) ...
