The only thing I miss about the old ATA layer was that I knew that a 
drive on a particular controller would always be assigned the same adX 
number, whether is was present at boot time, or added days later. This 
could get a little messy having ad2, ad4, ad12, ad20 and ad22, but at 
least if I added a new drive, it would always attach to say ad8.

Can this be done on the new CAM ATA?
