Make the question precise.
I assme there are two usb ports in my notebook at left and right separately.
When I plug mouse into
left usb port, I get 2-1.1:1.0
right usb port, I get 2-1.2:1.0

I want to know whether it is right that no matter how many times I reboot the machine,
the test result above will be the same.And if it will be the same, then why it will be the same.
