Is there a way to do this deterministicly?  I can't even get Linux to
number my ALSA devices consistently under 2.6.  It seems like a bit of
hotplug weirdness that goes away before I can debug it.  I'd say it
crops up once a month or so, I unload the modules and reload them all
by hand, and it's fixed.

Once you throw USB devices into the mix, fixed device numbering goes
out the window and you can't predict what devices show up when.  For
example, is there a way to tell the difference between two of the same
USD MIDI interface?
