SCSI_IOCTL_GET_IDLUN 0x5382. This ioctl takes a pointer to a "struct scsi_idlun" object as its third argument. The "struct scsi_idlun" is not visible to user applications. To use this, that structure needs to be replicated in the user's program. Something like:
typedef struct my_scsi_idlun {
    int four_in_one;    /* 4 separate bytes of info compacted into 1 int */
    int host_unique_id; /* distinguishes adapter cards from same supplier */
} My_scsi_idlun;
"four_in_one" is made up as follows:
(scsi_device_id | (lun << 8) | (channel << 16) | (host_no << 24))
These 4 components are assumed (or masked) to be 1 byte each. These are the four numbers that the SCSI subsystem uses to index devices, often written as "<host_no, channel, scsi_id, lun>". The 'host_unique_id' assigns a different number to each controller from the same manufacturer/low-level device driver. Most of the information provided by this command is more easily obtained from SG_GET_SCSI_ID.

The 'host_no' element is a change in lk 2.4 kernels. [In the lk 2.2 series and earlier, it was 'low_inode & 0xff' from the procfs entry corresponding to the host.] This change makes the use of the SCSI_IOCTL_GET_BUS_NUMBER ioctl() superfluous.

The advantage of this ioctl() is that it can be called on any SCSI file descriptor.
