This is not a question of knowing the device names.  It is a question
of the kernel device not being initialized and ready when it is needed
during boot.  Having static entries in /dev/ would not help in any of
the scenarios I described.

The removal of the big kernel lock made the kernel less predictable,
and is the source of these issues. :)
