+          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, as this doesn't match libvirt's understanding of
+          disk addresses, 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='pci'&gt;
+          from the &lt;disk&gt; elements with &lt;target bus='sata'/&gt;
+          and let libvirt regenerate it properly.
