So looking at this again, the OOPs is actually to be happening with an
REPORT_LUNs CDB that for pSCSI backstores is a special case, and is
getting emulated directly by TCM..

This afternoon I've been able to reproduce+fix this pSCSI bug, and below
is the patch that should get you up and running..

Here is the patch in action with loopback fabrics ports + sg_luns:

root@romley:/usr/src/target-pending.git# lsscsi | grep dvd
[2:0:0:0]    cd/dvd  ATAPI    iHAS124   B      AL0L    /dev/sr0       
[138:0:1:0]  cd/dvd  ATAPI    iHAS124   B      AL0L    /dev/sr1

root@romley:/usr/src/target-pending.git# sg_luns -v /dev/sr0
    report luns cdb: a0 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 
report luns:  Fixed format, current;  Sense key: Not Ready
 Additional sense: Medium not present - tray closed
Report Luns command failed
root@romley:/usr/src/target-pending.git# sg_luns -v /dev/sr1
    report luns cdb: a0 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 
Lun list length = 8 which imples 1 lun entry
Report luns [select_report=0]:

Please give it a shot to verify on your side with WinXP iSCSI clients.

Thanks Alex!
