I can reproduce the tgtd segfault quite easily by blocking the traffic 
on the initiator:

iptables -A INPUT -s <target IP> -j DROP

If there was some traffic (i.e., "dd if=/dev/disk of=/dev/null" before 
using iptables), after a while, we can see on the target that only one 
tgtd process is running, where the second instance segfaulted:

tgtd[8966]: segfault at 8 rip 40e72d rsp 7fffd9188c40 error 6

I can reproduce it with tgtd running on a 32 bit system and 64 bit 
system (kernel + userspace).

Something very fishy here - initiator shouldn't be able to kill the target.
