Idle curiosity: Acting as a SCSI target

From: Eli Carter (

Based on a conversation I had recently, my curiosity got piqued...

I'm not really sure how to query google on this, and didn't turn up what
I was looking for because of that, so here's the random question:

Is there a way to make a Linux machine with a scsi controller act like a
scsi device (is the correct term 'target'?) (such as a disk) using a
local block device as storage?

I'm not sure it would be of general use, but I can see uses in weird or
remote prototyping situations...

Like the subject says, just idle curiosity; I don't see having much use
for it, but I was intrigued by the idea.
