PS: Just in case you wonder "hm, sdv is awfully close to sdz - what happens
next?", the answer is simply that the standard Linux kernel then moves on to
device names /dev/sdaa, /dev/sdab, etc...

I'm not sure where the current limit of device names is, but I don't think
you'll be able to reach it with any hardware means of connecting drives (you
might manage it at a push with iSCSI devies etc).


What do you call a dinosaur with only one eye? A Doyouthinkesaurus.
