Bzzt. It's not that simple.

For SCSI-3 _all_ numbers are valid, and doesn't know of any
addressing scheme. It's only SPC-2 which introduced the addressing
scheme. So at the very least you should be checking the scsi
revision before attempting something like this.

But in general doing a sequential scan past 256 is criminally
dangerous. Any array / device attempting to is in most cases
misconfigured or does not have the correct BLIST flag set.

I know of some older Hitachi and EMC firmware which would pretend to
be SCSI-2, but supporting more than 256 LUNs per host.
Which, of course, it totally bonkers.

I'll be posting my 64-bit LUN patchset, that should fix this issue.

Cheers,

Hannes
