SubjectRe: LANANA: To Pending Device Number Registrants

Or you can fall back to mounting by UUID, which is globally
unique and still avoids referencing physical location. You also
don't need to manually set LABELs for UUID to work: all e2fsprogs
over the past couple of years have set UUID on partitions, and
e2fsck will create a new UUID if it sees an old filesystem that
doesn't already have one.

Other filesystems such as reiserfs at present don't have such a
thing. I brought this a while ago and in theory it's not too hard, we
just need to get Hans to officially designate part of the SB or
whatever for the UUID.
