    It has the same name with and with 2.6.27-rc7-something with
    fastboot merged. So why would this be a regression? The different name
    (scsi-...) happended with a vanilla 2.6.27-rc7.

    Initially, my intention was to find a unique name for the hard disk,
    that stays even if the disk is changed from Firewire to USB. However,
    this doesn't seem to be possible with a default udev.
