But we're talking about kernel device names, not names of device special files. When the kernel warns about errors on a disk device, it identifies it by kernel device name and udev is irrelevant.
Except with at least some of these proposals, where udev could give the kernel a more meaningful name to use in communicating with the user.
The "sdaq" naming is really just a waste of a namespace. The kernel might as well talk to you in major/minor numbers.
