I'll argue that case, with an example output:

ss0 at scsibus0 targ 5 lun 0: <UMAX, UMAX S-6E, V2.0> SCSI2 6/scanner fixedS3 ViRGE (VGA display, revision 0x06) at pci0 dev 11 function 0 not configured

Now, while that's not a _disk_, it shows that "dmesg" can get strange
info, and could easily miss a disk.

Adding an ioctl is small, usually easy, and will give exact results
without guessing.
