After having had odd behavior from TM on a netatalk volume, I've switched over to istgt and the globalSAN iSCSI initiator, using a ZVOL.  I found the istgt configuration non-obvious, but I also have little background in iSCSI.  Took me about an hour to get it up and running without authentication; haven't bothered since trying to get authentication to work.
