        sys/arch/xen/xenbus/xenbus_probe.c: revision 1.37
Sort vif and vbd device IDs numerically so that attach order does not depend
on the order they are passed in through xenstore. While this works for
hand-crafted Xen configuration files, it does not work for XenServer, XCP or
EC2 instances. This means that adding an extra virtual disk can make the
domU unbootable.
ID is actually based on the Linux device major/minor so this approach isn't
entirely correct (for instance, you can specify devices to be non-contiguous
which doesn't fit too well with our autoconf approach), but it works as a
first approximation.
Tested by me on XenServer and riz@ on EC2. OK bouyer@
Fix problem where devices with ID 0 were skipped as invalid as it didn't
distinguish between numerical zero and invalid numeric string.
