I found a small issue with virDiskNameToIndex() while moving
esxVMX_IndexToDiskName() to util.c that affects your
vboxGenerateMediumName() too. virDiskNameToIndex() created adjacent
indices up to 701. 701 maps to sdzz and sdaaa maps to 728. The indices
in between have no disk name representation. Because of this your
inverse mapping in vboxGenerateMediumName() will fail for indices >
701, but this can be solved once we have a general
virIndexToDiskName() in util.c.

I've posted patches to move esxVMX_IndexToDiskName() to util.c and to
solve the gap problem or to handle it at least.

ACK to your 2nd patch.
