    No need to quote the whole patch next time. :)

    Given that MMC is sometimes used in deeply embedded environments where
    udev might not be running to take care of dynamic device numbering,
    I chose to stay with a static layout.

    I could be convinced otherwise though. It would cause some additional
    hassles for me since we start udev lateish during boot and have a
    prepopulated /dev before that, but that can be dealt with.
