We also really, really need to start making the device mounts available
by disk serial number as the probe ordering will change the 'daXXX'

I think we should have that in any case, and devfs should make this really
However I think we should also consider mounting via UUID/labels instead
of device node. What I mean is that file systems assign a label or UUID,
and on mount they could scan all available block devices for (a)
containing this type of file system and (b) having that UUID.
