- A raw device name of a disk does not always point a same disk
- each boot-up time. Therefore, users have to use persistent
- device names, which udev creates when the kernel finds a disk,
- instead of raw device name. However, kernel doesn't show those
- persistent names on its messages (e.g. dmesg).
- This file can store an alias of the disk and it would be
- appeared in kernel messages if it is set. A disk can have an
- alias which length is up to 255bytes. Users can use alphabets,
- numbers, "-" and "_" in alias name. This file is writeonce.
