+          bhyve: change address allocation schema for SATA disks
+	</summary>
+	<description>
+	  Previously, the bhyve driver assigned PCI addresses to SATA disks directly
+	  rather than assigning that to a controller and using SATA addresses for disks.
+          It was implemented this way because bhyve has no notion of an explicit SATA
+	  controller. However, this doesn't go inline with the internal libvirt model,
+          it was changed for the bhyve driver to follow the common schema and
+	  have PCI addresses for SATA controllers and SATA addresses for disks. If you're having
+	  issues because of this, it's recommended to edit the domain's XML and remove
+	  &lt;address type='xml'&gt; from the &lt;disk&gt; elements with
+	  &lt;target bus="sata"/&gt; and let libvirt regenerate it properly.
