Limiting max_lun to 255 will make the driver to _not_ respond to 
LUNs higher than that; ie Well-known LUN won't work here.
Also the SCSI stack will be using REPORT LUNS anyway since you're 
advertising SPC-2 compliance. So your driver runs into issues if 
Hyper-V would ever return more than 256 LUNs with the REPORT LUN 
command or if any of the LUNs has an addressing scheme other than
'0x00'.
I would suggest to raise this to the technical limit (ie the largest 
LUN which the _protocol_ supports) and let REPORT LUNS deal with the 
actual LUNs.

Cheers,

Hannes
