Description

when setting up a drive in fstab, the DW should use the UUID of the partitio for more reliable long-term reliability/operation.

see the details in #1885, how the DW uses the device name /dev/sddi instead of the UUID of the partition. Using the device name is not very reliable, because it can change easily if the user changes what SATA port the drive connects to, or perhaps even the order changes due to enumeration races, or even perhaps BIOS updates.
