This patch turns most of TGTD into a shared library and all backing stores
into loadable shared objects.
Currently all backing store objects that are stored in ../tgtd/backing-stores (most of the time /usr/lib/tgt/backing-store) are automatically loaded when tgtd is started but this can later be enhanced to allow loading and unloading of modules at runtime.

This will make it easier for packagers to ship tgtd and backingstores in separate packages and thus reduce the dependencies on the tgtd package itself.

At some stage it would probably be neat to do soemthing similar for the transports and ship iscsi.so and iser.so as separate modules.
