OK so scsi-generic can't work before ;-) But then we can do 
autodetection. If somebody has scsihw: virtio-scsi-pci the scsi-generic 
should be available.

NO real difference lsi is always SLOW (around 2000-5000 max iops)

scsi-block is the same performance as scsi-hd (maxed 20.000 iops) vs. 
50.000 iops with scsi-generic.

I can't get that running as i don't know how to pass the open-iscsi 
device to the guest.
