The driver development was done based on ESX 3.5, I haven't checked
yet what changed between VI API version 2.5 and 4.0, but that's
already on the todo list.

What's the content of line number 1 of the alvis.vmx file?

Oh, that's a bug in the VMX parsing code, I'll fix that. The VMX
parsing hasn't get much testing with in-the-wild VMX files yet. It
would be useful if you could send my some of your VMX files to build
up a pool as input for automatic testing and to make the VMX parser
more robust.

You could apply this quick fix for testing:

diff --git a/src/esx/esx_vmx.c b/src/esx/esx_vmx.c
index 635a483..dddb7c4 100644
--- a/src/esx/esx_vmx.c
+++ b/src/esx/esx_vmx.c
@@ -822,7 +822,7 @@ esxVMX_ParseSCSIController(virConnectPtr conn,
virConfPtr conf, int controller,
     }

     if (esxUtil_GetConfigString(conn, conf, virtualDev_name,
-                                virtualDev, 0) < 0) {
+                                virtualDev, 1) < 0) {
         goto failure;
     }
