I've been using the thinp-test-suite, here:
https://github.com/jthornber/thinp-test-suite

After establishing a minimal config in config.rb, e.g.:
    'hostname' =>
    { :metadata_dev => '/dev/thin_iscsi/metadata',
      :metadata_size => 2097152,
      :data_dev => '/dev/thin_iscsi/data',
      :data_size => 17825792
    }

I run a single test:
export THIN_TESTS=EXECUTE
./run_tests -n /test_two_pools_can_create_thins/

Anyway, looking at the code, the sg setup code is common for all SCSI,
so I have no reason to believe that FC is different than iSCSI -- FC's
sg code may just be much more forgiving?:

sd_setup_write_same_cmnd -> sd_setup_write_same_cmnd -> scsi_setup_blk_pc_cmnd ->
 scsi_init_io -> scsi_init_sgtable -> blk_rq_map_sg

I'm not seeing any code that accounts for the possibility of a
WRITE_SAME bio having bv_len=512 but bi_size=65536 in blk_rq_map_sg().
I'm definitely seeing blk_rq_map_sg() take a WRITE SAME request and
create a sg with multiple segments.  That in and of itself seems like a
bug.  But I'm no scatter-gather expert!

I'm adding more debug printks to blk_rq_map_sg() to try to understand
what is going on... will share more once I have it.

But the iSCSI traces I got, with some debugging code that Mike Christie
provided -- attached to this mail, showed that the sg was setup
improperly (so I think) because there are multiple segments, e.g.:

iscsi prep [write cid 0 sc ffff880117ce5080 cdb 0x41 itt 0x15 len 512 sg count 8 bidi_len 0 cmdsn 883 win 128]
0 sg ffff88011a471800 0 512
1 sg ffff88011a471828 0 512
2 sg ffff88011a471850 0 512
3 sg ffff88011a471878 0 512
4 sg ffff88011a4718a0 0 512
5 sg ffff88011a4718c8 0 512
6 sg ffff88011a4718f0 0 512
7 sg ffff88011a471918 0 512

When the test is executed using your synchronous blkdev_issue_write_same
interface each WRITE SAME is confined to an sg with a single segment,
e.g.:

iscsi prep [write cid 0 sc ffff880117ce1c80 cdb 0x41 itt 0x5e len 512 sg count 1 bidi_len 0 cmdsn 902 win 128]
0 sg ffff880118d72e80 0 512
iscsi prep [write cid 0 sc ffff880116fc0b80 cdb 0x41 itt 0x5f len 512 sg count 1 bidi_len 0 cmdsn 903 win 128]
0 sg ffff88011a471940 0 512
iscsi prep [write cid 0 sc ffff880117ce1c80 cdb 0x41 itt 0x60 len 512 sg count 1 bidi_len 0 cmdsn 904 win 128]
0 sg ffff880118d72e80 0 512

And here is the sg that ultimately caused the libiscsi_tcp code to NULL
pointer (len is much too large, and it _seems_ like WRITE SAME has been
merged on a WRITE cdb's sg):

iscsi prep [write cid 0 sc ffff8800cfc953c0 cdb 0x2a itt 0x27 len 512000 sg count 20 bidi_len 0 cmdsn 1146 win 128]
0 sg ffff88011a476040 0 4096
1 sg ffff88011a476068 0 4096
