It does the right thing if you never change your scsi setup. The other
approach (to name devices after scsi-id rather than after the order
they are detected) also works in these simple cases.

The BSD-approach fails when you move, add or remove units from *any*

Naming devices after some physical attribute is, IMO, better than just
having them assigned to some `random' number.
