mlxsw are pci devices, so it follows this convention, i think:

* [P<domain>]p<bus>s<slot>[f<function>][n<phys_port_name>|d<dev_port>]
* PCI geographical location

Our devices are not on PCI. So they won't follow this. I've no idea
what they actually follow, since some are MDIO devices, some are SPI
devices, some are memory mapped.

I'm not against making the label option, but i do want to better
understand what we get as a result, just to make sure it is sensible.

Vivien, could you try a recent udev and see what happens?

Thanks
Andrew
