[discuss] kernel-2.6.3-13mdk: /dev/hda <-> /dev/hde

I just did the upgrade to kernel-2.6.3-13mdk-i686-up-4GB on a
ASUS K8V SE Deluxe Mainboard (Athlon64 3200+ but running in 32bit).
The first reboot ended in a kernel panic because the kernel was unable
to mount the root filesystem.
Fortunately I found the reason, somehow the naming of the P-ATA devices
has changed again. In the transition from kernel 2.4 to 2.6 /dev/hda became
/dev/hde (because of some SATA module loading reasons). Now the same
disk is called /dev/hda again. After editing /etc/lilo.conf and /etc/fstab the
machine boots now.
Has anybody else experienced the same effect?
Anyhow, I would be glad if such device renaming could be avoided in future
security kernel updates.
