Driver for generic ZFS-backed iSCSI SAN

Registered by Ondergetekende on 2013-11-12

A driver, derived from SolarisISCSIDriver, which implements cloning, snapshotting, volume backups and volume extend using ZFS-primitives (over SSH), but generalized to support linux and solaris.

Should include cursory instructions on setting up such a SAN, for linux as well.

Whiteboard

(smcginnis): Marking obsolete as this has been sitting out there for a long time. If this is still needed, please submit a new bp.

Given there's been no status updates, or no participation from anybody working on this and the fact that we're now less than a week out from final milestone proposed I think this needs to be pushed to Juno; assuming anybody is still interested in working on it.

(Ondergetekende) I'm more confortable with moving it to Juno; this would be my first significant contribution, and I'd really take my time to make it a good one.
