    SubjectDifferend udev names with different kernels
    Hi,

    what's the intention of /dev/disk/by-id/?

    My firewire hard disk seems to have different names with different
    kernels.

    With 2.6.26.3, it's name is
    /dev/disk/by-id/ieee1394-0030e001e0006585:00043c:0000.

    With someting after 2.6.27-rc7, merged with Arjan's fastboot branch,
    the disk has the same name.

    With 2.6.27-rc7, it is called
    /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-1WDC_WD10EACS-00D6B0_WD-WCAU41668315.

    One major config difference is that 2.6.26.3 has CONFIG_FIREWIRE and
    CONFIG_FIREWIRE_SBP2 set to "m", whereas the 2.6.27 kernels have set
    them to "y". But that doesn't explain the difference between both
    2.6.27-rc kernels.

    Shouldn't these names be somewhat constant? Otherwise they would be
    totally useless.

    Regards,
    Tino
