No. This will happen no matter how the system was installed, because 
modules are loaded concurrently and the first one to finish its setup
wins. This applies to the /dev/cdrom and similar links on systems with
multiple CD readers too.
The solution so far appears to be writing a rules file which will
statically assign the names.
