Please note that /dev/hdx device names are going away in the future --
even parallel ATA disks (IDE) will be called /dev/sdx. When this

will break.
This seems to be a MONUMENTALLY STUPID thing to do.  [snip]

You should direct your complaint to the kernel developers. That's where this change comes from.
While I might, eventually (depending on getting myself organised,
figuring out how and where to do it, and checking that someone else
hasn't already said the same thing, etc.).  This was the first place
that I heard that plan, so I replied in the same arena.  And as others
will say, it gives a chance for the thoughts to be mulled over before
making a bug report.

That makes a lot more sense than 20 of us half-witters whining at
developers, when one articulate envoy could be nominated from us, the
rank & filers in the cheap seats, to present a reasonable, informed and
defined question.

The ultimate goal is to have your disk show up at /dev/diskX; moving everything to /dev/sdX is just a temporary step in that direction.
