This kind of behavior is actually not uncommon, if you work with
enough "weird" SCSI devices.  The typical solution is to add a
table of devices that shouldn't be believed for LUN other than zero
in the OS'es I've dealt with.  Ugly, but it works.  See all the devices
that have SDEV_NOLUNS set in scspi/scsiconf.c, for example (and the code
in scsi_probedev that uses it to treat such devices specially).
