Though we might need to change the algorithm to honor "bus"
and "target" too, that's a different issue. The address generator
for scsi host device in this patch just follows the unknown
good reasons, only considering the "controller" and "unit".
It walks through all scsi controllers and their units, to see
if the address $controller:0:0:$unit can be used (if not used
by any disk or scsi host device yet), if found one, it sits on
it, otherwise, it creates a new controller (actually the controller
is implicitly created by someone else), and sits on
$new_controller:0:0:0 instead.

v2 - v3:
   * Improve the for loop a bit with John's suggestion

v1 - v2:
   * A new helper virDomainSCSIDriveAddressIsUsed
   * Move virDomainDefMaybeAddHostdevSCSIcontroller
   * More comments
   * Add testing.
   * problems fixed with the testing:
     1) s/nscsi_controllers + 1/nscsi_controllers/,
     2) Add the controller implicitly after a scsi hostdev def
        parsing, as it can use a new scsi controller index
        (nscsi_controllers), which should be added implicitly.

Given the comments in:

https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2013-May/msg02017.html

The comment above is still confusing.

As far as I understand things units are 0-7 with 8 being the max for
narrow and 0-15 with 16 being the max for wide.

It seems as though for narrow there are 8 units, but 7 is reserved for
the controller, thus leaving a perception of only 7 max units.  Make
sense so far?

Yes. But I need to confirm.


What I'm not clear on with the above check is if we did have a wide bus
(eg, 16 possible units), then is unit 7 still reserved for the
controller?

Yes, even if we add the hasWideScsiBus for qemu driver, as domain_conf.c
is for all of the drivers, we need to keep it as 7. Unless there is critical
reasons for changing it.

If so, indicate that and the code is fine, but the comment
could be made less confusing. If not, then you need to have (readd) the
check for max units again.

For narrow bus, we didn't declare anywhere to say the max unit "7" is
occupied by the controller. And actually in the code, it only uses "0-6"
for allocation. But regardless of whether it will use the 7 for the controller
itself or not.  Simple checking with

if (unit == 7)
    return true;

is fine. No need to have a redundant checking like:

if (max_unit == 16 && unit ==7)

Because even the 7 will be taken by the controller itself, it's still used,
and returning true is correct.

The comment like below

+    /* In current implementation, the maximum unit number of a controller
+     * is either 16 or 7 (narrow SCSI bus), and if the maximum unit number
+     * is 16, the controller itself is on unit 7 */

just follows what we do in the current code (it doesn't declare what will
the 7 will be used for).

I think what you are complaining is "and if the maximum unit number
is 16, the controller itself is on unit 7", what you want to see is
"the controller itself is on unit 7", right?

I agree with it, but before make the changing, I need to confirm whether
the controller is on the 7 indeed. And makes the changes if it is together
with changing on comment in virDomainDiskDefAssignAddress too. And it can
be a later patch.
