I presume you're referring to the Hyper-V virtual storage driver? This 
has nothing to do with that module -- I don't even have it compiled in. 
It's just simply the Linux kernel initiator connecting over plain 
software iSCSI to a Windows Server 2016 iSCSI target.

This is easy enough to reproduce. Just set up a Windows Server 2016 
target and try and use it from Linux. You get I/O errors as soon as you 
try and format the disk.
