Your answer only says that device enumeration is deterministic.  Nobody
said that it wasn't.  I know autoconf(9) hasn't aged very well, but it's
not that bad.  Yet.

Masao said exactly that. Or rather, that it wasn't possible to get the same device number for a specific device facing other changes in the hardware configuration.
