Adding a checking function in libvirt to prevent from this case.
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.

Currently, the qemu will throw out an error when I hot-unplug any of disks attached to usb-bot controller.

{ "execute": "device_del", "arguments": { "id": "scsi1-0-0-1"}}
{"error": {"class": "GenericError", "desc": "Bus 'scsi1.0' does not support hotplugging"}}

Libvirt will report an error:
# virsh detach-disk rhel64qcow2 sdd --current
error: Failed to detach disk
error: internal error: unable to execute QEMU command 'device_del': Bus 'scsi1.0' does not support hotplugging



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.
