there any way to modify this utility so that drive uniqueness can be preserved with fanout devices like usb hubs and multi-drive HDD "docks"? I gather that is a lot to ask since the udev rules seem to correspond to the device immediately in contact with the computer's usb connection.
It works with USB hubs as long as you plug them in one at a time to create the initial ".rules" file. After that you can plug a bunch into the hub and they seem to mount ok. Anyways, they do for me. I can get two identical Sandisk Cruisers to work right in a hub.
I may spend some time later working with the udevadm info dumps to try to tweak that.
As far as the HD cradles are concerned, one would have to do a bunch more research on how to grab those. Maybe grab events from dmesg or something ..
