For filo-0.5 the drive order is actually two drives per PCI bus
For filo-0.6 (current trunk, using libpayload) the drive enumeration
has changed to something else, but I don't know exactly what. I spent
some time tracing through the code but just looking at it, it seems
like it has changed the 0.5 functionality. Not sure.

Again it's in bus order so the right name depends on what comes
before SATA on the PCI bus.

Right - this is likely to be neccessary with mechanical media.
