The device model will not give devices default names. It will pass the
responsibility to userspace, along with the path to the device via
/sbin/hotplug. From the patch, the userspace agent can derive various
things from the device's directory, including the device type and the UUID
of the device. From this, userspace can look up what to name the device.
