I was writing a response to an army list question today and I realised I didn't know the answer to this question. Always willing to learn from the vast knowledge of others I thought I would put this out there and see what the story is.
Okay here is the situation:
A team of Firewarriors has a Shas'Ui with Markerlight, Target Lock, Drone Controller and Markerdrone (the appropriate ones hard wired).
Seeing as the Markerdrone is taken as wargear for the Shas'Ui, can it make use of the Shas'Ui's target lock, allowing it to shoot its markerlight at the same target as the Shas'Ui?
Or, because it becomes a part of the unit (for instance for purposes of 25%/50% losses last man standing tests etc) does it have to shoot its markerlight at the same unit as the Firewarriors?
What do you think/know?
I don't care what you say. I found a lightsaber in my garage and that makes me a Jedi

The other element of this would be that the unit in question would effectively be benefitting three times for the price of the single target lock if the drones were also able to use its facilities for themselves.
Like Riki already mentioned, the Codex does specify that the model which possesses the TL is the only one which benefits from it, not any others even though they may be connected in a hard-wired fashion to the TL owner!
