No, we don't.  The disk has a normal bus/target/unit address, like any
other SCSI disk.

A simple

  <disk type='file' device='disk'>
       <driver name='qemu' type='raw'/>
       <source file='/path/file'/>
       <target dev='sda' bus='scsi'/>
       <address type='drive' controller='0' bus='0' unit='0' />
  </disk>

will do exactly what you want and add a default ibmvscsi controller.
More complex cases are handled with the controller element:

- giving a specific address to the controller:

  <controller type='scsi' model='ibmvscsi'>
       <address type='spapr-vio' ... />
  </disk>

- using a PCI controller even with an sPAPR machine:

  <controller type='scsi' model='virtio-scsi'>
       <address type='pci' ... />
  </disk>

- using both a vscsi and a PCI controller:

  <disk type='file' device='disk'>
       <driver name='qemu' type='raw'/>
       <source file='/path/file'/>
       <target dev='sda' bus='scsi'/>
       <address type='drive' controller='0' bus='0' unit='0' />
  </disk>
  <disk type='file' device='disk'>
       <driver name='qemu' type='raw'/>
       <source file='/path/file'/>
       <target dev='sdb' bus='scsi'/>
       <address type='drive' controller='1' bus='0' unit='0' />
  </disk>
  <controller type='scsi' model='ibmvscsi'/>
  <controller type='scsi' model='virtio-scsi'/>

(possibly with an spapr-vio and a pci address in the respective
controller elements).
