Frankly this is a a solved problem already. If you need persistent device
names, don't use /dev/sdN.
With SAN you can use device mapper multipath to make your devices appear
as /dev/mpath/<WWN> where WWN is the world world name for the LUN. Or
you can setup udev rules to give a similar persistent name. 'man scsi_id'
Re-writing config files in Xen or libvir is just the wrong place todo this.
