+Description:
+ SCSI target port identifier and logical unit identifier of a
+ logical unit of an SBP-2 target. The identifiers are specified
+ in SAM-2...SAM-4 annex A. They are persistent and world-wide
+ unique properties the SBP-2 attached target.
+
+ Read-only attribute, immutable during the target's lifetime.
+ Format, as exposed by firewire-sbp2 since 2.6.22, May 2007:
+ Colon-separated hexadecimal string representations of
+ u64 EUI-64 : u24 directory_ID : u16 LUN
+ without 0x prefixes, without whitespace. The former sbp2 driver
+ (removed in 2.6.37 after being superseded by firewire-sbp2) used
+ a somewhat shorter format which was not as close to SAM.
