It doesn't not solve the problem that ide drives are not scsi drives
though, and don't appear under the scsi hiearchy.
To be fair though, even if they did, the bus,id,lun may have changed
anyway because the driver changed, and the enumeration order would have

simply don't trust the kernel developers for that kind of consistent
SGI went as far to extend the SCSI layer (xscsi) to provide persistent
naming for FC and SCSI arrays.
