Because no new fake SCSI drivers are accepted anymore.

If you can access the firmware/hypervisor code, have that provide SCSI. Then the Linux driver piece is easy, obvious and flexible SCSI, and is not "fake."

If the SCSI guys were smart, there would be a totally generic helper
layer that allows anyone to hook into the SCSI layer as a virtual SCSI
disk provider in like 10 lines of code. :-)

The SCSI target code gives you the capability to do that (the SCSI transport part, the virtual storage part is easy from there).
