RE: kernel 2.6.17-1.2586.fc6-i686 loads usbstorage before sataharddisk are detected



It can be problematic still in cases like mine, where usb-storage in the
initrd breaks my dmraid setup .. See:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=203244

initrd's script has hard references to sda & sdb, so without consitent
naming this would fall apart

and this is a problem... why?
In principle the naming of disk devices shouldn't matter, with
mount-by-label and the hal fstab changes....

this kind of asynchronous naming is going to get more and more
prevalent, both due to linux changes in parallel hw discovery and the
increasing asynchronous nature of hardware in general... so we better
have the OS ready to deal with that (and afaik FC5 and later are)
