This is part of a NetBSD/sun4m configuration file:

# SCSI bus layer.  SCSI devices attach to the SCSI bus, which attaches
# to the underlying hardware controller.

scsibus1 at esp1
scsibus2 at esp2

No, I don't have this many disks right now, but I wanted to make sure that
if one did die (or just got removed), the others would not move and screw
up /etc/fstab. I also have a configuration with two SCSI busses where the
drives are allocated with even drives on bus zero, and odd drives on bus
one (I was of two minds about that one).
