Dear Kernel developers,

Your work is appriceated, but I have a request:

  Please allow reproducable hardware detection.

As systemadministrator I can't affort having a disk that is one moment
/dev/sda and the next reboot /dev/sdb.

Having a fast booting system is great, having disks swapped not.

Please prefer consistence above speed.

Thank you for reading this humble plea.
