[libvirt] [PATCH 0/3] scsi-disk: Device Identification fixes

The vendor specific designator in the Device Identification VPD page has
two problems:

1. It defaults to the BlockBackend name (-drive id=...), which everyone
   expected to be a host detail that the guest never sees

2. With -blockdev based setups it defaults to an empty string; if this
   default is used with more than one disk, the guest OS will interpret
   this as a single multipath disk.

We can address problem 2 immediately, and start running the deprecation
clock for problem 1.

  scsi-disk: Don't use empty string as device id
  scsi-disk: Add device_id property
  scsi-disk: Deprecate device_id fallback to BlockBackend name
