[Qemu-devel] [Bug 1529449] Re: serial is required for -device nvme

Since both "drive=" and "serial=" expects an arbitrary string (while the
value for "drive=" must be unique since it's the "id=" of a "-drive"),
why not use the same string from "drive=" as the value of "serial=" when
it's not specified explicitly?

Apparently "-device scsi-hd" has already been doing that (although it
does not create the "sn" VPD when a serial is not explicitly specified).

  Truth is it seem to accept random string as its value anyway, if
  that's the case, couldn't qemu just generate one for it when it's not
