On further examination max_channel is the maximum number of channels including channel 0. Thus the value set for
max_channel is correct. max_id appears to indicate the limit. In scsi_scan_channel the loop control is (id < max_id) and
hence the value I have here is correct. max_lun is also used like max_id to indicate the limit. In scsi_sequential_lun_scan()
the loop control is (lun < max_dev_lun) and hence I think the value I have here is fine.
