In light of recent changes to SAM 2, to clarify the Device Identifier as the
SCSI Port Identifier, the names and descriptions of identifiers in VPD Page
83 need to be reviewed.
Some of the identifiers described there are what I would call Logical Unit

Also note that the definition of Logical Unit Identifier has been lost from
SAM2.  In SAM1 it is defined as a Target Identifier + Logical Unit Number.
This definition really doesn't work well with multi-ported devices.
Regardless, a new definition of Logial Unit Identifier is needed to for a
name that uniquely identifies a Logical Unit, (at least within a SCSI Domain
but hopefully in a wider context.)
