iSCSI doesn't obey maximum transmit/receive values from target

While testing with iscsitarget ( I found that VirtualBox doesn't seem to obey the target's maximum segment lengths. It causes the iscsi_trgt to flood the kernel's buffer with error messages and very low performance.

Here is the original thread at the iscsi-target development mailinglist:

The default segment lengths are 8192. If I manually set these to 65536 on the target, the problem is solved.

This issue was fixed quite a while ago, and recent 3.0.x (and of course 3.1.0) releases use what the target specified as maximum segment length.
