Fixing a USB disk to a specific device name

Is it possible to assign a specific device name to a USB disk? As in, say
I have 2 USB disks -- currently they appear as da0 and da1. One of these
(da0) contains the key for a GELI encrypted partition, and so I mount it
from fstab while booting (to get the key).
What I'd like to know is whether there's any way for me to ensure that the
da0 disk always appears as da0. I don't want it that tomm I plug in
another disk (or change the order of disks, though I'll be more careful
with that) and suddenly da0 is no longer at da0! That would hamper the
boot process ... not nice.
