Follow-up Comment #3, bug #19381 (project grub):

Firstly, 16 is still less than 20.

Secondly, you're talking about GRUB's own device name representation. I'm
talking about the way in which it scans system devices when constructing
device.map. In GRUB Legacy, see lib/device.c:init_device_map; in GRUB 2, see
util/i386/pc/grub-mkdevicemap.c:make_device_map. Search for "IDE disks" and
you'll find that the same restriction exists in both.
