Bug description:
  I am virtualzing a physical server for which I need to set the
  SCSI/SATA drive serial.  It is comprised of 12 " " spaces then 8
  letter/digits.  If I exclude the spaces, the drive serial is not
  accurate.  If I include the spaces I get the following error.

  error: Failed to start domain test1
  error: internal error: driver serial '            ABCD1234' contains unsafe 
characters
