It's not a bug ... it's the encoding. All the other devices use this
too. Ideally we should have switched to 64 bit lun numbers for the
encoding to be exact, but nothing so far has gone over 32 bits. If we
don't encode the Address method as part of the lun number, we don't get
the reverse transform right and the addressing often fails.

That does mean that arrays that use address method=1 in REPORT LUNS have
their lun numbers start at 16384.
