As we know that Libvirt translates a device name of the form (regex)
/^[fhv]d[a-z]+[0-9]*$/ into the corresponding index (e.g. sda => 0, hdz =>
25, vdaa => 26) such that any trailing string of digits is simply ignored.
Thus disk names like vda2 after attaching vda1 will error out like this:

2017-02-16 10:31:05.214+0000: 10668: error : qemuMonitorJSONCheckError:387
: internal error: unable to execute QEMU command 'device_add': Duplicate ID
'virtio-disk7' for device
error: Failed to attach disk
error: internal error: unable to execute QEMU command 'device_add':
Duplicate ID 'virtio-disk7' for device

Thus, should we document this (trailing digits are ignored) in virsh
manpage for attach-disk or is the user  expected to know?
Also shd the error message reported be better in such cases or this one is
fine?

Thanks,
Nitesh.
