This is not guaranteed and there was drivers which changed that. That's only when changing kernels, and should even then be fairly exceptional. I expect that when the whole ATA implementation has settled down, the old-styly device names will be fairly stable again. What I'm talking about here is: if I reboot the system with the same kernel, do I run the risk of device names changing on me. AFAIK that only happens when disks are on different controllers.
