Sysinstall, even if it has proven to be useful, is outdated in many
respects, it doesn't cope really well with GEOM or ZFS for example.

Using GEOM labels ensure that fstab will always be consistent, so *this
is* a solution.

Now, you can try to patch the kernel to make it probe devices in a
predefined & sorted order, but I guess it will be much more difficult ;)

 j'interdis ici les parisiens centralistes et snobinards de profiter de
 cet aveu pour briller d'un calembour à tendance zoophile et bocagophobe
