I agree.

I see.

The iSCSI target uses one function to send all outbound data. So in
order to do it right every function that is sending data in multiple
chunks need to mark it correctly. Of course someone could also do some
wild guessing and saying that everything that is below 512 Bytes gets
pushed out. I wonder what Nab has to say about this?
