Yes, but that assumes I manage to get at the phandle of the device. Right now
all I know hot to get is the phandle of the ide or scsi controller - and for
disks/cds the channel/target/lun info. I considered cheating and only do a
few tries on possible path representation for that.

I agree that if we would know the phandle for each struct device, your method
would be the fastest and simplest. So - back to the original question - how
do we identify the firmware node for every new device attaching?
