For the record, this driver _is_ in-kernel and does attach to CAM, if you 
want a comparison point:

I've compiled a prior version of this and it appears to work, but haven't

I've wanted to play with iSCSI targets on FreeBSD but have lacked the 
requisite test equipment. One of these days I'll get the hour or two I 
need to put together a test rig.
