 Okay, as usual, I really prefer if you could explain how the patch
actually work instead of just describing the symptoms you are trying
to fix. That said I think I understand how this work , asking the
xen store is probably the only reliable way to get the device ID
and we already do this for networking devices, so I guess the patch
is okay. But in the future please explain how the patches you send 
are supposed to work, this makes review way faster and the patches
are less likely to sit unverified in the list archives,

  patch applied and commited,

  thanks a lot !
