Description of problem:
Hi guys, when I add -device ahci, the following ide-hds are added automatically into ahci.5. In order to get more than one working disk I have to specify the bus=ahci.4 (3,2,1..).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
qemu-kvm-1.4.2-5.fc19.x86_64 (+ upstream 1.5.0)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. qemu-system-x86_64 -device ahci -drive id=aa,file=/tmp/asdf,if=none -drive id=bb,file=/tmp/asdf,if=none -device ide-hd,drive=aa -device ide-hd,drive=bb

Actual results:
qemu-system-x86_64: -device ide-hd,drive=bb: Can't create IDE unit 1, bus supports only 1 units
qemu-system-x86_64: -device ide-hd,drive=bb: Device initialization failed.
qemu-system-x86_64: -device ide-hd,drive=bb: Device 'ide-hd' could not be initialized

Expected results:
Assign the disks into the free IDE-compatible bus (ahci.4, ahci.3, ...)

Additional info:
When I explicitly specify the bus.port it works fine:
qemu-system-x86_64 -device ahci -drive id=aa,file=/tmp/asdf,if=none -drive id=bb,file=/tmp/asdf,if=none -device ide-hd,drive=aa -device ide-hd,drive=bb,bus=ahci.1
=> ahci.5 is taken by first ide-hd, ahci.1 by the second one.

This is still relevant upstream, and since it's just a minor RFE I moved it to the upstream qemu tracker, please track progress there.
