  It's a controller chip default. It was left alone because it doesn't
  matter much: host ID doesn't affect throughput, except perhaps on a
  horrendously overloaded bus. However, drives whose ID is set by
  jumpers are usually shipped with ID 7 (all three jumpers on), so you
  can just plug one in to an ID 0 host.
