From what I can tell in the code, padstr() is only coded in the IDE section, not SCSI/SATA?

Are you sure you need to input the spaces? the standard inquiry reply
that outputs the serial uses spaces as padding, so even if you use
serial "ABCD1234" the inquiry command is going to tell you
"            ABCD1234".

Are you sure it pads on the left?  padstr() doesn't look like left...
