Stable device names for USB disks?

I seem to recall there was a neat trick involving GEOM to allow USB
disks to be mounted in the same place every time the system boots but I
can't find it.   Right now my system (5.3 RELEASE) seems to being a
random da? device for each drive that changes with every reboot -
clearly not a good situation.

Does anybody have a fix for this?
