Hmm...

by-label and by-uuid clearly isn't useful here since that's based on
filesystem data ;-)

by-id doesn't look too helpful; it'd be good for determining model/serial
number mapping to disk, but I don't have that info.  Potentially useful
information in other cases, but not here :-(

by-path, unfortunately, returns the scsi controller data at a hardware
address, not the ata#.# number
eg
  pci-0000:00:1d.7-usb-0:3:1.0-scsi-0:0:0:0
  pci-0000:00:1f.2-scsi-0:0:0:0
  pci-0000:00:1f.2-scsi-1:0:0:0
  pci-0000:00:1f.2-scsi-2:0:0:0
  pci-0000:02:00.0-scsi-0:0:0:0
  pci-0000:02:00.0-scsi-0:1:0:0
  pci-0000:02:00.0-scsi-0:2:0:0
  pci-0000:02:00.0-scsi-0:3:0:0
  pci-0000:02:00.0-scsi-1:0:0:0

(internal disk, internal DVD writer, internal DVD-ROM, 5 external disks,
1 USB disk)

That's really useful for mapping position in the array to sd number,
though!

Thanks for the idea, though!
