Would this device name be read-only, or would it be editable/writable
by the user (e.g. through virsh edit)? If it should be read-only, I
see no problem supporting device names in the ESX driver. But If it
should be editable/writable it may be a problem to implement this for
the ESX driver, as I'm currently not aware of any sensible way to
store such an custom device name in a persistent manner on an ESX
server.
