[stgt] Having a callback to set a redirector target, port and reason.

Hi Tomo,

Thinking along the direction of having redirector, think about the
following situation:

A node has multiple ip addresses (say,, and in different subnets and the "serving" tgtd is serving all
network ports(0:0:0:0).

When the redirector tgtd has to respond with a "RedirectAddress",
instead always redirecting to a static address (say, it can
give an external entity an opportunity to provide a RedirectAddress
which is on the same subnet as the initiator.

This can be done by providing multiple redirectAddress under a target,
but when we are talking about a cluster, failover, failback etc., it
will be handy to put that responsibility outside of stgt.

What do you think ?
