[linux-lvm] disk naming

this should be a simple question, but I can't find a direct discussion
in the lvm documentation. I believe that i have found that LVM will find
appropriate PV's regardless of their name (sda,sdb).. Is this true? Do i
need devfs to ensure that i always have the same disk naming, or will
LVM handle this for me?  I am currently using scsidev for naming
purposes, but have found that vgcreate will not work with scsidev device
names (/dev/scsi/sdh0-0c0i4l2p1)
/dev/scsi/sd(host=0,scsiid=4,LUN=2,partition #=1)
