With scsi storage, which includes USB flash storage, 
the device name frequently changes with rebooting.
For example, a swap drive alone can be /dev/sda but 
if the system starts with a store connected by USB, 
the swap drive can be /dev/sdb.  Is there any way to 
have the kernel use a name such as 
/dev/fujitsu which it gets from the 
scsi bus?
