Hmm, this seems like a problematic restriction.

How does this work if we start off a guest with 3 disks
attached to the usb-bot SCSI controller. Then hot-unplug
the 2nd disk.

Next time we need will need to start with with LUNs 0
and 2 populated only, otherwise we have ABI change upon
migrate or save/restore.

I think this restriction about contiguous luns must be
removed if this device is to be usable with multiple luns.
