    Why? What's the point? You are asking to paper over the way the kernel
    works (remember storage devices are on lots of different kinds of busses

    The fact that a static /dev keeps these race conditions from showing up
    as often as they really are there is no reason to keep trying to rely on
    old, undefined behaviour :)
