Good point. And if all devices are going to be filled for longer time,
this function will keep selecting the last one. Maybe I should select
last+1 in that case. Would that address your concern or did you have any
other solution in mind?

Thanks for pointing that out.

I didn't try with non-sequential accesses. Will do that before
respinning v2.
