    It's obvious once you see the problem, isn't it?

    Duncan Sands found exactly the same problem and the same solution a few
    months ago, but it was never added in.

    In this case, your patch could be improved by calling device_initialize()
    during the first loop and device_add() during the second. However, that
    region of code is kind of in flux right at the moment. When things settle
    down, I promise to remember your change and make sure it gets in.
